Big Table has been headquartered in Spokane since 2009. Spokane’s restaurant and hospitality industry employs nearly 24,000 people and is the 4th largest employment sector in Spokane County. Nearly half of those employees fall below the “survival” income line set by economists. Big Table comes alongside these hardworking people when they experience a crisis or an unexpected challenge to offer support, encouragement, and hope.

We are now accepting referrals on the Palouse including Moscow, Pullman and Colfax areas.

Big Table Eats Around the World 2021

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO TRAVELED WITH US … to Brazil, Japan and Sweden!

Now more than ever hospitality employees need our support to provide hope in the midst of the challenges they face. The restaurant and hospitality industry truly is the lowest rung on the employment ladder and concentrates all of the most vulnerable in the community under one roof.  Now a year and a half of pandemic shutdowns and protocols have amplified the already high levels of need in the industry. We are so grateful to everyone who came and honored our industry with their presence, enthusiasm and generosity. If you’d like to still give towards our 2022 care budget, there is still time!

RESOURCES

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.
