The mission of The Giving Table is to empower everyone to do good with food and live a more generous life. Recipe for Good  is your toolkit to develop a personal philanthropy strategy and identify which areas of the food sector are most meaningful to you. The result? Delicious ways to make a difference.


Think outside your kitchen.

Since cooking in our own kitchen is just the start of our engagement with the food community, think of The Giving Table as an extension of your dining room.  More than ever, consumers recognize that their choices have an impact and are demanding that the food system become sustainable, equitable, and accountable to its community and our environment. The Giving Table makes it easy to be part of the movement and stay informed about all things food including hunger, sustainable farming, healthy eating, policy, advocacy opportunities, and the nonprofit organizations that are making a difference every day.
