A Table for All, a toolkit for Christian Community Meals in a framework of food justice, offers practical, spiritual and theological inspiration gleaned from decades of experience running meal programs. This toolkit will help you and your congregation extend and receive God’s restorative hospitality while engaging in broader food justice movements.

Food creates attitudes of abundance and hospitality, of mutuality and resilience, of thankfulness and celebration

Agriculture, cooking, and eating are spiritual practices


Food roots us in the land and in community. Food connects us across generations, cultures, and socio-income divides.
