For Participating Families

Mission & Vision


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 the knowledge to promote optimal health, well-being, and dignity.

Core Values

As a nonprofit organization focused on creating a healthier community for local children, the following values define who we are and what it means to be a part of TABLE:


We trust one another to act and speak with transparency, integrity, and respect. We work hard to achieve our shared goals and assume the best intentions of one another.


We work together collaboratively to achieve our mission; promoting an environment that fosters friendship and loyalty; cooperating, compromising, and supporting one another in our own diverse strengths.


We are dedicated to ensuring the well-being of the children in our community by working hard, adapting to meet the needs of the kids we serve, engaging and involving the families we serve, and carrying out our mission for years to come.


We prioritize people above all else, valuing those who serve and are served by TABLE, treating them with kindness, dignity, and respect. 

Childhood hunger right here where we live, work, and go to school? Unacceptable! That’s what a group of UNC students and community people decided in 2008. Hungry to help, we named our organization TABLE to represent a place where caring hearts and hungry bellies could come together in ways that would transform us all.

Joy MacVane, TABLE Founder
