Through the TABLE@Home program, we deliver bags of healthy non-perishables and fresh produce to children attending Chapel Hill-Carrboro and Orange County schools year round. This extra food ensures children have plenty to eat when they do not have access to school meals.
How does it work?
TABLE delivers food directly to children’s homes during the school year and over the summer. To effectively and efficiently reach the 700+ children we serve, volunteers deliver food Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday every week to an average of 230 children each day, 420 homes each week.
Prior to Thanksgiving, winter break, spring break and the start of summer, extra food is delivered to help kids during these longer stretches without school meals.
What is included in each bag?
TABLE’s bags contain 50% fresh produce and 50% healthy non-perishables. Each bag includes 10 meals and snacks that vary each week depending on what fresh food is in season and what non-perishables we are able to provide. Some examples of the food that is given to kids include oatmeal, individual cereal, peanut butter, pasta, tomato sauce, canned tuna/chicken, granola bars, and milk or juice. Vegetables and fruits could be baby carrots, apples, oranges, blueberries, sweet potatoes, lettuce, zucchini, and bell peppers.
