What Our Clients Say
"The program that has been provided for our family has been a blessing to us all. We don't have a table to eat at and it is nice to be able to sit as a family at a table and take part in a meal."
Share the Table, Inc. is a faith-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization supported by seven charter churches, community churches, civic organizations, and local businesses in Pender and Onslow counties in North Carolina. Through our free community meal, food pantry and school backpack programs, we are feeding over 950 Pender and Onslow country residents per week.
Since our inception in October 2010, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of people served by this ministry. We have experienced an 80% increase in the number of people served in the last 12 months.
We believe our mission for Share the Table ministry is more than a provider of emergency food assistance for those who come to us for help. Share the Table provides opportunities for building relationships and filling lonely gaps that we all sometimes feel. We have been able to help people who must make critical choices between food and other basic family needs. We have been able to ease the stressors–and for some, the guilt and shame–that greatly impact critical issues of education, behavior, standard of living, quality of life, crime, child well-being, health care, and the workforce.
