As a part of our work, we get the pleasure of connecting with partners that make it a point to support their community and make a positive difference! One of our longest and closest partners is ThunderCloud Subs. We are so appreciative for their ongoing support over the past 12 years!
When asked about why they began their support of Urban Roots all those years ago, ThunderCloud Sub owners Mike and Jeanie Haggerty shared, “We were taken by the enthusiasm and high level of engagement of these interns at Urban Roots. We believe in this outdoor experience and its ripple effect through the community. As Austin continues to grow, this is one opportunity that engages interns with nature. It helps cultivate an appreciation of the natural world and helps feed their souls.”
If you’re not familiar with the long-time Austin-favorite business, ThunderCloud Subs began in 1975 and is “a neighborhood sub shop with a rich tradition of serving fresh, fast, and healthy food in a casual atmosphere” (ThunderCloud Subs). They believe in “a simple yet logical philosophy of selling a fresh meal at a reasonable price… When you come into a ThunderCloud Sub Shop, you’ll experience the creation of a great sandwich.”
We are so honored to partner with such a great organization! Thanks to their support, we are able to continue our work to cultivate leadership skills through food and farming to transform the lives of young people and inspire, engage, and nourish the community.
