Join H-E-B and United Way for Greater Austin for the 30th annual Feast of Sharing!


Feast of Sharing is the largest community Thanksgiving meal in Austin. We provide Thanksgiving dinners to over 14,000 Central Texans each year with the help of volunteers just like you! 

WHEN AND WHERE: The event will take place at the Palmer Events Center (PEC) located at 900 Barton Springs Road on Tuesday, November 26th. Please be sure to arrive on time for your shift. Volunteer check in will close at 7:15pm. Volunteers arriving after this time are welcome to enjoy dinner as guests.
 
  • First shift: 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. 
  • Second shift: 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. 
PARKING: There is no volunteer parking at the Palmer Events Center (PEC) garage. Free parking will be available at the 2nd Street Austin Convention Center Parking Garage located 201 E. 2nd Street with a free shuttle service to the Palmer Events Center. We will have coupons for free parking onsite at check-in this year. 

The shuttle will run from 2:30 - 9:30. Please leave enough time to park and take the shuttle to the PEC so you arrive on time to your scheduled shift. We encourage volunteers to carpool, use public transit, or be dropped off at this event.


VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION: EVERY volunteer must sign up individually

WAIVER OF LIABILITY: You are required to read and agree to the Feast of Sharing volunteer waiver on our site. If you are accompanying a minor, you will need to fill out a paper copy onsite at the event to ensure each minor is paired with their accompanying adult. If you are volunteering with a minor, you can print the minor waiver out in advance and bring it filled out to speed up your check in process.
