Where Community Meets Good Food

Raleigh needs a place where all people can EAT. Raleigh needs a place where COMMUNITY can be built. Why does Raleigh need such a café?  We have soup kitchens, we have nice restaurants, but we do not have a place that brings us all together to eat.

Mission: A Place at the Table provides community and healthy food for all regardless of means.

Vision: Soon to be located in downtown Raleigh, A Place at the Table will be a welcoming and inviting space that provides an opportunity for all people to come and experience conversation and community while enjoying an excellent, fresh, and healthy meal. People long for a community, a place to fit in, a place to feel welcome, and a place to be a part of something bigger than just themselves.
