Big Table launched in Seattle in July of 2015. The Hospitality Industry in Seattle employs almost 275,000 people with over 3200 restaurants and 200 hotels. The average restaurant server earns an annual income of $31,500. That is $20,000 below the low-income bar as established by HUD for single-person households. Big Table comes alongside these hardworking people when they experience a temporary setback to offer support, encouragement, and hope.

unexpected 20s

Want to get involved now? Try sharing some U20s! This is a great place for individuals and small groups to start partnering with Big Table. Big Table provides small envelopes that you fill with $20 bills and give out when in a restaurant or hotel. Simple and amazingly effective. Look for one person working in a restaurant or hotel invisible to others, or one that is having a bad day. It very well could be someone in the kitchen or behind the scenes. Then give them the Unexpected 20 envelope with a $20 bill inside. Tell them it is simply a gift for them…no strings attached. This is not payment or a tip, it is a gift. After the Unexpected 20 is delivered email us with a story of what you noticed or felt at stories@big-table.com.

Need envelopes? You can print your own or contact your city and we’d love to send you some.
