How We Do It

..........

Efficiency is Our Guiding Principle

Table to Table is the most cost-effective hunger relief program in the entire state of New Jersey and one of the most efficient not-for-profits in the entire country. More specifically, we operate a fleet of refrigerated vehicles for the daily pick-up and delivery of fresh food, eliminating the need for storage or warehouses. Our trucks start and end each day empty. And, as a result of our efficiency and transparency, we’ve received the 4-star rating by Charity Navigator for the 10th consecutive year and earned a Guidestar Exchange Platinum Level Designation.

Accepts No Government Funding

Table to Table relies 100% on our own efforts to raise the funds needed for our operation. Thanks to the generous continued support of exceptional corporate partners, including American Express, Samsung Electronics, American Airlines and BMW, and many kindhearted individuals.

Fundraising & Management Expenses Never Exceeds 4%

At Table to Table, at least 98 cents of every dollar goes directly to the operation of our vehicles and the delivery of food. The key to our operation has always been an emphasis on efficiency and effectiveness, enabling us to feed the greatest number of people with the freshest and most nutritious food. We maintain an internal cost to our organization of 10 cents per meal.

Delivering Food for Free

Unlike other hunger relief organizations, Table to Table does not charge any fee whatsoever to the agencies receiving our deliveries. This is accomplished without charging a fee of any sort to either food donors or recipient partners.
