Request Food

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the high demand for food, TABLE currently has a waitlist of 250 children. If you need food support, you can still register for the program, but please be aware that the current wait for services could be up to 6 months. You can sign up for our program, see if you qualify for SNAP, or access other local hunger relief services below.

Join the TABLE Family

We’ve been serving local children and their families since 2008 with the goal that all kids have equal access to fresh, nutritious food and the education they need to establish healthy eating habits. Our Food Access programs have been designed to support kids of a variety of nationalities, with food allergies, and special diets. And, we have made it easy for children to receive food every week regardless of transportation with our at-home delivery service.

How does it work?

  • TABLE’s staff creates a menu that consists of 50% fresh food and 50% non-perishables that follow our nutritionist-approved Nutrition Guidelines.
  • This food is then packaged up and delivered to your home on either Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday depending on where you live.
  • Each family also receives our Chefs@Home nutrition kit 1X a month that includes a recipe for kids to make with their families, the ingredients, and a fun nutrition-based kids activity.

How do I sign up?

TABLE has partnered with local hunger relief organizations PORCH and IFC to create one application that provides families with the opportunity to sign up for not just TABLE’s services but also those from PORCH and IFC. You can access that form below.
