FoodStock 2014 Sponsorship Opportunities -To Entertain, Educate, and Nourish Hays CountyAbout FoodStock

The mission of FoodStock is to entertain, educate and nourish the people of Hays County through world-class performances, generous food and monetary donations, as well as educational programs to enrich our community. Working side by side with the Hays County Food Bank, a 501(c)3 organization, festival prots benet those in need of assistance throughout Hays County. Now entering its third year, FoodStock is a series of free concerts beneting the Hays County Food Bank. With each event we create an opportunity for your business and others in our community to have a real impact by providing a free and wholly unique forum for music, art and public outreach. FoodStock delivers an eclectic combination of incredible musicianship and hospitality in the distinctly beautiful setting of the Courthouse lawn at the center of the San Marcos Plaza. This wonderful location affords us a space for deep interaction between artists, businesses, volunteers, other non-prots and the community. Please join us as we grow these efforts.

Why
In 2012, according to the Hays Consolidated Independent School District Nutrition Department, 52% of children qualify for free or reduced price breakfasts and lunches. More specically, in Hays County 24,000 people are food insecure to date. Food and funds donated directly help local families in various states of need ranging from lay offs to those on a xed income. The need for community action has been growing throughout recent years. In the last ve years alone, we have seen a 44% increase in the number of times people receive food. In 2007, the Food Bank distributed food to individuals an average of 6,943 times per month. By 2011, the average had climbed to 10,919 times per month.

Our Impact
As stated above festival prots benet those in need of assistance throughout Hays County and are presented to The Hays County Food Bank. FoodStock would love to have you be a part of our team. By sponsoring you're not only further developing a diverse audience for your brand but also providing an extremely important role in our event. By reaching out through your booth, be it selling your wares or advertising yourself, we are creating stronger ties between the community and the local businesses and artisans that make Hays County such a unique place to call home.
