Help Us Serve the Next 6,000 Community Meals

The Table's Community Meals

 

June 21st update: 

WE DID IT!!! Wow - what a generous community. In much less time than we had planned we surpassed our goal and have raised $32,000 towards The Table's valued Community Meals program. 

Thank you so much to everyone who made a contribution. The funds raised will cover our basic costs for the Community Meals through the summer.

 

During the ongoing COVID19 pandemic demand The Table's Community Meal program has grown substantially. During our regular sit-down table service program we served on average 225 meals a week. We are now routinely serving over 600 takeout meals a week.

In 2020 we had access to emergency funding through our partner organizations and governments to cover the additional costs of this increase. Most of these funding sources are not available in 2021. 

For the month of June, two generous supporters have offered to match donations to the Community Meals program up to $15,000.

Together we can raise $30,000 by Canada Day and ensure we can serve the next 6,000 meals.*

The Table's nourishing Community Meals are all made from scratch in our kitchen using fresh ingredients. Here's what some community members have said about The Table's Community Meals...

"Love with a meal. The Table has worked wonders."

"The emotional and mental stress due to a 12 hour shift during the pandemic makes picking up a meal and going home such a relief."

"I am diabetic and eating properly is important. I am eating much healthier now."
 

*Food costs for our meals are between $2.50 and $3,00 each, we have staff and overhead which adds to these costs.
