Keep Us Writing

$3
per month

Every bit counts and helps pay our writers. No reward at this level but if every one of our readers contributed this small amount monthly, we'd be more than covered and could focus more on covering Houston's bar and restaurant scene rather than raising funds. Thank you! 

Note: this tier amount is billed the 1st of each month unless you cancel — but we plan to keep giving you good reasons not to!

About Houston Food Finder

Established in November 2016 by restaurant critic and food/beverage writer Phaedra Cook, Houston Food Finder provides in-depth coverage of #Houston's best #food, #drinks and the #restaurants and #bars that serve them. 

Patreon is a platform that allows fans to collectively support creative endeavors that they enjoy or value with a small dollar amount the beginning of each month. Our Houston Food Finder readers can not only ensure that our publication continues but, at certain tier levels, be rewarded for doing so!  

(To be clear: Patreon support facilitates a recurring "subscription" amount charged monthly but you can cancel anytime. For a one time contribution with no reward, visit this page.)

While Houston Food Finder does have some amazing sustaining sponsors, the truth is that acquiring these and bringing in sufficient funds each month is an ongoing struggle. Many restaurant and bar owners "don't believe" in advertising or just can't afford it. The thing is that Houston Food Finder is an incredibly important medium for those same owners to communicate their news to the public. For that reason, many are doing what they can to lend their support to this publication by way of rewards to our readers, including gift cards and unique experiences. 

We are always on the hunt for more sponsors (including those that are NOT restaurants or bars). Email us if you've got something you want to promote! We've got some amazing social media services as well as ways to get to know our readers.

For now, we hope our readers see the value of supporting us each month. To keep us going— which means paying for our writers, online hosting, marketing support and other expenses — it really is going to take the collective effort of Houston's dining community. 
Goals
$401.35 of $3,500 per month
This is the base level needed for Houston Food Finder to barely pay its operating expenses (web hosting with a sufficiently powered server, tech support, various software, freelancers, social media team and admin support). At this level, we're getting by but not sustainable long-term.
