Summer TABLE is an extension of our Weekend Meal Backpack Program. During summertimes, TABLE delivers food to kids at summer camps with scholarship programs, summer schools and door-to-door in neighborhoods. It is often harder to find where kids are during the summer since not everyone is in summer school and not everyone can afford camp; however, the need for food is critical during these long months without school meals. Because of this, TABLE staff and volunteers have had to get more creative in finding locations to deliver food to our kids.
- We deliver to 35 sites in the summer to reach our kids. About 15 of our partner sites in the summer are neighborhoods where we deliver door-to-door.
- Food for the Summer is a program within the Town of Chapel Hill that provides daily hot lunches in the summer at select locations in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. TABLE advertises with our kids to let them know about this free resource for weekdays, while Food for the Summer ensures their participants know about TABLE’s program for the weekends.
