We believe that when good food and people come together, there’s potential to make a real difference. That’s why our story begins and ends with shared moments in the garden, the kitchen, and around the table.
For the last six years, Table has been providing a space for those from all walks of life to create, grow, cook and share together, through our range of social outreach projects at St Canice’s in Kings Cross.
These projects include:
Organic Soup Kitchen – Our hearts and bellies are nourished from the inside out. Each week, the homeless and marginalised come to our soup kitchen to enjoy organic and pesticide-free food. Much of this produce is grown by our friends at Cana Farm, which uses the growing of food as rehabilitation for the marginalised.
Grow Program – Where connections flourish and the healing process begins. As a collaboration between us and St Vincent’s Hospital Mental Health Unit, this program consists of Horticultural Therapy classes and uses the growing of food as therapy for those with a lived experience of mental illness.
Cooking School – There’s never been a more important time to understand the benefits and significance of good food. The Cooking School is dedicated to teaching young mums & dads in crisis accommodation the importance of nourishment. It’s about the many ways good food can do more than just feed our bodies and minds.
Table Talks – This is our event series that aims to cultivate community and conversations. Beautifully curated and filled with delicious food, ticket sales go towards raising money for Table projects.
