‘Round the table sponsors

One of our most telling measurements is “the gap”. The gap denotes the disparity between the suggested donation for a meal and the average amount that is actually donated per meal. We calculate the average gap each month. For example, in August 2018, the Café saw a gap of $5.47 average per meal.

As more people utilize our pay-as-you-can system, the gap will continue to increase. This is a clear and tangible way to measure and ensure that we are fulfilling our mission. It is also an area of financial stress for the Café. Closing this gap would allow us to serve more people who volunteer for their meal and those who pay-as-they-can.

Close the Gap

For a week…$2,550

Friends of the table seasonal sponsors

These sponsorship opportunities require contacting us at least one week in advance. Here, we offer two possibilities. One is to purchase the bounty of the season—seasonal produce at its peak freshness. The second option is to partner with one of our local farmers. The sponsor will support a farmer and their chosen produce of the day. The menu will concentrate on the local ingredient and highlight the sponsor-farmer relationship.

Ex. Spring salad of walnuts, goat cheese…on a bed of [Farmer’s] fresh spinach, brought to you in partnership with [Sponsor].
