What We Do and Why
The Children's Table provides food to needy families.
It is our belief that no man, woman, or child should be without the nutrition to lead a healthy, happy, and productive life.
Food is received from many different sources:
- Food drives are conducted in schools, the business community, and local church groups.
- Farmers open their fields so that our volunteers can glean surplus crops. Some farmers are actually planting extra crops just for us.
- Additionally, some of the largest organizations in the country donate surplus inventory for distribution in our area.
The Children's Table was founded by Verna and Bill Brown with food from their home garden in Bronson, FL and has grown into an organization that provides millions of pounds of food each year to people in need.
Since 1996 we have served 53 Florida counties and provided disaster relief assistance in rural communities within Florida and Alabama. Additionally the Children's Table has helped staff a small medical clinic in Honduras also sent food to Afghanistan.
