Filling Bellies During Snow Days
For many kids in our schools snow days mean sleeping in, building snowmen, sledding with friends and drinking hot chocolate. However, for children who rely on school meals day-to-day, snow days create worry for how they will get their next meal. When school is out it may mean one more breakfast and one more lunch that families now have to find a way to provide for their children.
Why Invest In Nutrition Education?
After 10 years of serving kids in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, TABLE is well known for the impact we make every week delivering healthy, nutritious food to children who may otherwise be at risk for hunger. What many are unaware of is the effect TABLE’s nutrition education programs have on the children we serve. So, why does TABLE invest in nutrition education?

Sensing Our Food Choices
Have you ever thought about how your senses of sight, smell and touch impact the food choices you make? They are a vital component to our dietary decisions from what we choose to purchase at the grocery store or farmer’s market to what we order at a restaurant or cook at home.
