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.

eats around the world – 2020 style

This year, our virtual fundraiser was themed Big Table – In the Storm. 2020 has battered every one of us and many of those in the restaurant and hospitality industry have lost everything or are clinging to a flotation device. The impact of the pandemic on our local restaurant and hospitality community has been devastating… but what we can do Together Through the Storm strengthens our response and changes lives. Watch incredible stories of hope and impact right here in Spokane thanks to our amazing donors and sponsors who partner with Big Table.

You can still help!

Share these stories of hope in the storm with others. We would be honored if you shared the virtual link on social media and with those in your sphere of influence.

Give to Big Table today. Your donation will make a huge difference. Click to give to Big Table.

community resources for hospitality employees


unexpected 20s

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

Need envelopes? Contact your city. We’d love to send you some.
