TABLE provides healthy, emergency food aid to hungry Chapel Hill and Carrboro children.
Through this mission, TABLE brings together college students and community volunteers committed to feeding hungry children in the Chapel-Hill Carrboro area.
Weekend Backpack Program: The "bread and butter" of TABLE. This program puts bags of healthy nonperishables and fresh food (much of which is from local farmers) directly into the hands of school children in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. The bags have enough food to last the weekend: when their only other secure meals (free/reduced-cost school lunch and breakfast) are unavailable.
Summer TABLE: During the summers, TABLE delivers weekly nutritious food, including fresh produce from local farms, for 6 weeks during summer months. Summer TABLE is an extension of the Weekend Meal Backpack Program that delivers weekly nutritious food, including fresh produce from local farms, for 6 weeks during summer months.
SnackChef: Fresh, healthy snack and mentoring program. Volunteers visit local afterschools served by TABLE and introduce the children to local produce and yummy ways of easily preparing it. This program began as a way to ensure that children would like and eat the fresh food they were getting in their weekend meal bags.
