Transit for Turkey Time

It’s almost turkey time, and if you hurry, you can gobble up a free bus pass for the 22nd annual Austin Feast of Sharing dinner on Tuesday, Nov. 22 from 4 – 8 p.m. at the Palmer Events Center.

Every year, Capital Metro and H-E-B team up to offer transportation for the event. Trot over to one of these stores and pick-up a free day pass (while supplies last) that’s valid only for the day of the feast:

  • H-E-B #1 – 2701 E. 7th St.
  • H-E-B #3 – 1000 E. 41st St.
  • H-E-B #8 – 2400 S. Congress Ave.
  • H-E-B #12 – 2508 E. Riverside Dr.
  • H-E-B #15 – 9414 N. Lamar

Then stuff your address into our trip planner to find the best route to get to 900 Barton Springs Road.

With the generous help of hundreds of people from H-E-B and other community volunteers, the Feast of Sharing will serve a bountiful Thanksgiving feast to more than 13,000 people from Austin, Travis County and surrounding communities.

If you aren’t quite ready for Thanksgiving, maybe this list will put you in the mood. The feast will include:

  •  3,625 pounds of turkey
  •  3,200 pounds of mashed potatoes
  •  3,200 pounds of vegetables
  •  170 gallons of gravy
  •  1,050 pumpkin pies
  •  13,000 dinner rolls

If you or someone you know needs a helping hand getting to the Feast of Sharing, please stop by HE-B for a free pass. And have a happy Thanksgiving!
