Creating a memorable dining experience. Every Thursday evening, our TABLE of PLENTY volunteers create a beautiful dining room, complete with table cloths, fresh flowers, real plates and flatware, and music. Each guest is | seated and served a warm, healthy meal by our TOP volunteer servers in black aprons and our signature custom name badges seen volunteering for those in need. Sample Meal: Pasta with Meat Sauce, garlic bread, organic green salad, freshly baked pie, and a choice of beverages.
Loving one another is our goal. Sr. Jeanette Braun, Director of the TABLE of PLENTY says it best: “We honor the dignity of each person. Whether you cook the food, serve it, or greet our guests, our standard is high: We all strive to reflect LOVING ONE ANOTHER as each volunteer puts their fingerprints on creating a memorable supper for everyone. Our TOP volunteers range from 13-80+ years-old. They work together bringing their smiles, warmth and kindness to each guest, who may hunger for more than food.
Achieving GOALS matters. The TABLE of PLENTY has served over 22,600 delicious meals. Volunteering for those in need, TOP is poised to again achieve its GOALS:
- Building and keeping a TOP volunteer team that is second-to-none and operates with repeatable processes to make it possible to serve our guests with love and efficiency.
- Controlling the rate of our growth, so we deliver excellence within our budget.
