Our Story

For 20 years, six busy working women met monthly and dreamed of the day when they would have the time to marshal their resources and talents to tackle a social problem of mutual concern.

That day is now. Welcome to Ample Table for Everyone.

The Problem

Each day, 22 percent of New York City children are hungry and don’t know when they will eat next. Their families lack the resources to provide nutritious and dependable meals. This is called “food insecurity”– limited or uncertain availability of food for a healthy life.

What We Do

We want to mitigate food insecurity in the five boroughs of New York City by addressing the key causes: lack of time, lack of money, inaccessibility to nutritious food, and unfamiliarity with a variety of healthy ingredients, cooking methods and recipes. ATE offers financial support to organizations, individuals, projects, programs and/or new models that afford New York City families access to more sustainable and consistent food consumption with an emphasis on healthy eating.
