Dreamed up and distilled right here in Texas, Tito’s Handmade Vodka is the spirit of our home state. Since the mid-nineties, Tito’s has made a vodka so smooth you can drink it straight, shared its story with anyone who’d lend an ear, and thanked every fan who believed in that iconic copper cap.
After some time, giving thanks turned into giving back. Not only did Tito’s show gratitude for the individuals who supported the brand, but it started supporting the communities that helped pave the way to its success. What began as a small donation request for a local nonprofit event transformed into a global program, “Love, Tito’s,” the philanthropic heart of Tito’s Handmade Vodka. The “Love, Tito’s” program is turning spirits into love and goodness by joining forces with nonprofits to host events, participating in service projects, and giving back to communities in meaningful ways.
Today, Tito’s focuses on empowering employees, customers, and fans to make the world a better place through “Love, Tito’s.”
Tito’s continued these efforts with the 2023 Texas Monthly BBQ Fest by supporting nonprofit organizations making real impact and change, organizations like Feeding Texas and Hunters for the Hungry.
Feeding Texas has a goal to ensure adequate nutritious food for all Texans, improve the health and financial stability of the communities it serves, and engage all stakeholders in advocating for hunger solutions. Reaching over 5 million Texans each year, the organization is on a mission to create a hunger-free Texas. Its work is propelled even further with the additional support of its program Hunters for the Hungry – licensed hunters can drop off legally tagged, field-dressed game to be prepared and distributed to local food banks. Since its start, Hunters for the Hungry has provided over 10 million servings of venison to community members in need.
Texas-born with a passion for doing good is reason enough to gain the support of Tito’s Handmade Vodka. But this particular organization hits even closer to home for the brand.
Cultivated by a team of seven farmers and producing over 25+ types of fruits and vegetables, Tito’s built Fourteen Acres Farm at its distillery to expand employees’ relationships with food. Through a weekly on-site farmers market, employees have the opportunity to select the food they’re most interested in. During each market, folks can chat with the farmers to learn how the food is grown and get tips and tricks for preparing, cooking, and storing their produce at home.
The farm has gone on to inspire the “Love, Tito’s” Block to Block program, a program dedicated to increasing access to fresh produce for neighborhoods across the country through community gardens, another integral step in helping close the hunger gap.
Over the years, Tito’s has gained a reputation for its high-quality product and goal to make people happy while making the world a better place. Experience a taste of both and raise a Tito’s cocktail to Feeding Texas and turning spirits into love and goodness. Cheers!
