Springtime Class Series

Value Statement –

We are an organization that amplifies and supports existing assets in our community. By leveraging TTK’s 1.5 acres, we create gathering opportunities to transfer learning from one person to another.

This particular series supports the economic health of local chefs, their craft and people like you!

How These Classes Help Community Members –

When you enroll in a TTK sponsored class, you are ensuring that at least 5 seats are donated to community members who might not otherwise get the opportunity. By removing barriers to access for our most vulnerable learners, you are helping to raise the tide for all boats.

In addition to donated seats, every ticket sold also supports TTK’s Farm to Food Bank program as $30 is allocated to producing farm-fresh-family-meals for South Austin Church.

If we sell out, the Farm to Food Bank program receives $750 in revenue.
