WHY      Low-income communities need tasty, healthy, 
         convenient and affordable meals and groceries 
         readily available from a positive and respectful place.

         Volunteer assistance combined with a large network 
        of suppliers who donate their excess, healthy food 
       (or provide special buying opportunities) 
       keep prices affordable. Meals are priced to 
       compete with fast food options, making it easier 
       for families to eat healthier within their means. 
       Plus all the food offered is informed by expert 
       nutritional guidelines, which makes it easy for 
       customers to make great food choices.

         Volunteers help prepare raw ingredients and 
         package meals, working alongside
         professional chefs who teach valuable knife skills 
         and food safety.

HOW      Volunteers must be healthy and at least 14 years old.
         All volunteers must wear clean hats or provided hair
         nets and aprons and gloves, as well as wear
         closed-toe shoes and clean clothing that fully 
         covers armpits and midriffs.

         that meets local needs and by assisting
         companies in building successful community
         involvement programs that:
       * Produce appreciable results while
           conserving recipients' limited resources,

       * Bring people together to make a difference.

"...we have an abundance of food and much of it is going to waste through inefficiencies....So there's a lot of opportunity to better utilize what we're growing."

"At the lower economic rungs particularly, people are forced into bad decisions due to economics because calories are cheap and nutrients are expensive. The foundation of Daily Table was to try to figure out how on earth do we deliver to these one in six Americans an affordable, nutritious diet?"
Doug Rauch, Daily Table Founder (and former president of Trader Joe's)
