Our Why

Our Mission

The mission of Table to Table is to keep wholesome, edible food from going to waste by collecting it from donors and distributing to those in need through agencies that serve the hungry, homeless and at-risk populations.

Since we began in April of 1996, Table to Table volunteers have rescued and distributed over 25 million pounds of food to area agencies.


Volunteers are essential to our mission. Each day, they are keeping great food from going to waste through their efforts. We have many volunteer opportunities available. Click on the link below to find out how you can help.


We couldn’t do what we do without YOU!

Table to Table charges no fee for our service. We rely on support from the community to carry out our mission.
Your support of Table to Table is crucial.

Every dollar we receive for our operation yields nearly seventeen dollars of impact as we distribute the food we rescue. It is an incredible return on your donation dollar. Please consider becoming a Table to Table partner with a tax deductible donation today.
