Black History Month Food Truck


Join Austin ISD in celebrating Black History Month throughout February! Every year, to honor our Black students, staff and families Austin ISD celebrates Black History Month, a time to highlight the district's commitment to creating a safe, supportive and inclusive environment.

The Austin ISD HUB Program Department is dedicated to increasing economic equity within the Austin ISD community. Our motivation is to infuse capital in small businesses to reflect the diversity of Austin ISD students and positively impact current students and Austin ISD alumni, their families, and their neighborhoods. We focus on engaging minority (MBE) and women owned (WBE) businesses through a race and gender-conscious process designed to encourage greater investment in Historically Underutilized Businesses. While our primary mission is equity in construction contracting we encourage participation in all phases of procurement.

We Invite you to join us in supporting minority women owned businesses and Black History Month by joining us for our Black History Month Food Truck Event on Friday, February 24th from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Learn more about the Black women owned business we are partnering with below. Pre-order is available!

Fried chicken, mac & cheese, and collard greens from A Touch by Tonya

A Touch by Tonya

Rich to the taste, yet comforting to the soul that only "A Touch By Tonya" can provide!

I can still hear my grandmother say, "Keep an eye on that food Tonya", "Yes ma'am" was the normal response. That's when my love of cooking was acquired. Watching the food cook, steaming and smelling oh so good. I noticed she never measured anything, she just sprinkled until she felt it was enough. Raised from Louisiana roots, I was always told, it's not what you cook but what you put in it that makes a difference. That's why there is nothing but LOVE in my cooking. Cooking expresses my love language. Seeing people enjoying the flavors of my food that's rich to the taste and seeing how it touches their soul, makes this 27 year old dream totally worth the wait. May 2022, “A Touch by Tonya Soul Food and Southern Cuisine” food trailer, became a reality! Gratitude. Philippians 4:12-13

Rich to the taste, yet comforting to the soul that only "A Touch By Tonya" can provide! Specializing in traditional southern cooking like Smothered Pork Chops, Fried Chicken (like grandma’s) Smothered Chicken, Oxtails, Candied Yams and of course the infamous O.M.G. Collard Greens are just some of the fan favorites. Weekly specials on Thursdays and Fridays. Available for community and private events.

Patricia's grandmother
Inspired by our Grandmother

With a variety of offerings to choose from, we're sure you'll be happy with our products and customer service.

Inspired by our late grandmother, "Suga", who baked all of the family cakes, we aim to provide you with scratch-baked goods made with premium ingredients featuring that extra ingredient, love.

PatriciaPatricia is an Austin ISD alumnus and an electrical and computer engineer turned Cake Artist at Suga's Cakery. She baked her first cake when she was just 9 years old and began baking more frequently after her paternal grandmother Josephine affectionately called "Suga" passed away. After baking for family and friends for several holidays, she wanted to ensure that her cakes looked as good as they taste. During a random but serendipitous trip to a local craft store, she ended up enrolling and completing all the offered cake decorating classes. As she began to hone her skills through practice and the insistence of family and friends that her cakes were too tasty and pretty to just keep giving away, the business of Suga's Cakery, LLC began October 17, 2014 as a Texas Cottage Law Home bakery.
