Founded in 2009, Big Table is a non-profit that cares for restaurant and hospitality workers in crisis. Grounded both in faith and a commitment to care for all in need, Big Table changes individual lives and builds community through intentional relationships, timely intervention and transformational coaching. 

Restaurant and hospitality workers statistically include the highest concentration of those most vulnerable in our community, many with little or no safety net. Pandemic shutdowns have compounded the issue further by shattering the hotel and restaurant industry with many employees losing their jobs or having their hours cut drastically.
