Our mission is to feed delicious and nutritious food to everybody.

Regardless of your ability to pay, our doors will be open to feed you.

Big Big Table, Inc. is a Community Café -- a pay-as-you can lunchtime restaurant,

focused on addressing hunger, reducing food waste, and building community. Our motto is:

Everybody eats.  Everybody gives.  Everybody matters.

With pay-as-you-can pricing and a significant volunteer component in day-to-day operations,

everybody has a chance to get what they need and give what they can.


Big Big Table Community Café, Inc. is a member of One World Everybody Eats, a network consisting of 60+ organizations utilizing a sustainable, global enterprise model. Big Big Table champions healthy and local food options, as well as waste reduction.

The number one goal of Big Big Table is to feed everyone who walks through the door. Community Cafés are a dignified response to hunger, increasing access to healthy food and improving food security for anybody and everybody, especially the most vulnerable in our community. The restaurant menu will include "suggested donation" pricing. Some will pay more, some will pay less. Our model invites non-financial contributions as well, including goods and labor, to help us achieve our mission while also validating that everyone has a contribution to make.


Ultimately, Big Big Table is reducing food insecurity in our region and promoting healthy living, nourishing body and soul while bringing people together as a community.

Everybody eats. Everybody gives. Everybody matters.

Why pay-as-you-can?
