TABLE delivers healthy food and nutrition education to children in Orange County, North Carolina.
We envision a community where all children have equitable access to nutritious food and knowledge in order to experience optimal health, well-being, and dignity.
Through our hunger relief and nutrition education programs, our goals are to:
- Improve children’s overall health
- Increase children’s knowledge of nutrition, positive attitudes toward healthy eating, and/or long-term healthy eating habits
- Ensure kids and families are engaged, involved, and feel dignified
- Ensure kids have access to and eat sufficient nutritious food
What Makes Us Unique
- The only local non-profit focused exclusively on childhood hunger in Orange County.
- A one-of-a-kind food distribution model delivering food directly to children at their home every week ensuring transportation is never a barrier to accessing food.
- We serve children of 7 different ethnicities and accommodate their dietary needs by adjusting their bags of food for allergies, vegetarian/vegan requests, and ethnic & religious special diets.
- Our bags of food contain 50% fresh produce, with a majority of it coming from local farms when available, and 50% healthy nonperishables based on dietary guidelines. And, our menus have been reviewed by nutritionists.
