Theatre Action Project at the Mandala Food Drive

Theatre Action Project attended the Mandala Food Drive at UT on Wednesday, Nov 4!

The harvest initiative was very successful in spite of the tight economic situation; Austin is lucky to have such a generous, giving community. The event raised more than 200 pounds more than last year’s harvest, almost 2,000 pounds of food! The total fruits and vegetables weighed in at 875 pounds; the canned goods and other non-perishables were slightly over 1100 pounds.

The event itself was very colorful and inspired, with paths of produce winding up to the Can Mountain in the center of the donations. If you would’ve been able to see it from an aerial view, it would have resembled a Mandala, much like the ones that Theatre Action Project was creating on the sidewalks. TAP put down long sheets of paper and invited one and all to create chalk mandalas to celebrate the harvest. There was also a booth set up for individuals to come up and make a Mandala on a smaller scale to take home with them.

It turned out being the perfect balance of sunshine and nonprofit fundraising and TAP was happy to be there adding to the fun!
