Our Mission: Table to Table picks up fresh excess food and brings it to places where it can be served to our neighbors who are hungry. In 2020, we will redistribute enough nutritious food for 27 million meals.
THREE THINGS YOU CAN DO THAT WILL HAVE AN IMMEDIATE IMPACT ON OUR COMMUNITY:
Probably the most helpful thing is to make a donation today.
Go to our website and donate online. Your gift will immediately help bring fresh nourishing food to thousands of hungry neighbors.
Due to COVID-19, we’ve lost the opportunity to host our spring food & wine events, which raise almost 1/3 of our annual budget. Without these events we urgently need your support to raise $35K/week which is the cost to operate our fleet of refrigerated delivery trucks. And every donation counts.
2. Neighbors now need more food than ever. With schools closed, students who typically might receive 2 meals a day at school are now going hungry. Parents who have been laid off or furloughed are often unable to adequately fill that gap. In addition, as many of our recipient agencies have temporarily shut their doors, hundreds of the clients they serve are now at home facing the pressing dilemma of putting food on their tables to feed themselves and their families.
So while it’s more challenging now to distribute all the food we receive, it would be even harder without willing hands and hearts to help. If you like to “volunteer” you could organize a ‘Fresh Food Distribution Day’ at your local church, Y, or any safe place with outdoor space for boxes to be assembled and people to drive/walk up to receive what might be the only food they have to eat.
At least 10 organizing volunteers are required. You arrange for the space, set up tables for food distribution, spread the message/time for neighbors to come – and Table to Table will provide the food.
3. And finally, you can help by getting the word out. Follow Table to Table on Social Media, ‘Like’ us on Facebook and pass our news and information around to all your friends, co-workers and family. Together we can face this unprecedented demand and rescue and deliver more food than ever to thousands of neighbors who need it most.
For more information visit tabletotable.org or call Julie Kinner at (201) 681-0862.
It only costs 10 cents for every meal we deliver. A donation of $25 will help us deliver 250 meals. Just think of what your donation of $100 can do.
