Food for Thought: Chef Harvey and Siena raise money for Communities in Schools
Chef Harvey and Siena Ristorante Toscana participated last week in Food for Thought, an annual fund-raising event that raises money and awareness for Communities in Schools (CIS).
Communities In Schools of Central Texas surrounds students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
Communities In Schools is a dropout prevention program. Through campus-based programs and special projects, Communities In Schools creates a network of volunteers, social services, businesses, and community resources that work together to break down barriers and help students succeed.
Communities In Schools of Central Texas serves thousands of children and families every year, providing options where there once were none.

This year’s event raised nearly $650,000.
“I love being a part of Food for Thought because it benefits Communities in Schools and the important work they do to support students and help them graduate from high school,” said chef Harvey in an interview with the Austin Chronicle.
For the event, he prepared cold-smoked sea scallops, salted watermelon, key lime mignonette, and Marcona almonds.
Thank you, Chef Harvey, for all you do for our community.
