(Sept. 26, 1:00 p.m.) The Texas Department of Agriculture is asking chefs and restaurant owners to offer menus featuring food and drinks from the Lone Star State on Oct. 1. Proceeds from the Go Texan Restaurant Round-Up will go to food banks in the state.

The department said in a news release that since its launch in January, more than 300 establishments in the state have joined the Go Texan restaurant program. For a $25 annual fee, participating restaurants receive assistance sourcing products produced in the state, use of the Go Texan brand on menus, other printed materials and window decals and inclusion in Go Texan publications and events.

The department of agriculture said in its release that the program aims to not only promote local products but also to help members lower their transportation costs.

According to the department, Texas has the nation’s second-largest foodservice market with sales expected to reach $33 billion this year.
