Ev­ery Sun­day this sum­mer at Snack Bar (1224 S. Congress Ave., www.snack­ba­raustin.com) is “Sa­mar­i­tan Sun­day,” dur­ing which the res­tau­rant raises money for lo­cal non­prof­its. Past re­cip­i­ents have in­cluded East Austin Soc­cer Club and the Austin Zoo and An­i­mal Sanc­tu­ary. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sun­day, a por­tion of pa­trons’ pur­chases will go to Austin Pets Alive, says co-owner Bethany An­dree.

Texas has some of the most di­verse and in­ter­est­ing food tra­di­tions in the coun­try. Texas Folk­life, a non­profit that works to pre­serve the state’s cul­tural his­tory, is con­duct­ing an on­line sur­vey to col­lect sto­ries and de­tails re­lated to Texas food­ways. You can share your hol­i­day eat­ing tra­di­tions, food mem­o­ries and ob­ser­va­tions on how food has changed dur­ing your life at www.sur­vey­mon­key.com/s/V9GK6DS. The group will use the an­swers to cre­ate fu­ture ex­hibits and doc­u­men­taries.
