The donation is part of the Company’s SuburbanCares community-giving platform.

Suburban Propane’s donation enables the Keep Austin Fed team to continue their invaluable work in rescuing thousands of meals each month, feeding hundreds of neighbors living with food insecurity, and putting a dent in the amount of food that ends up in landfills, producing harmful methane gas. Representatives from Suburban Propane’s headquarters in Whippany, NJ helped sort and redistribute rescued food at Keep Austin Fed’s walk-in cooler location near downtown Austin.
