Our Mission

Our mission at The Neighborhood Table is to reduce hunger in our community, improve quality of life for our residents and create an awareness of needs that exist in our community.

FOCUS on the Future capital campaign update

Highlights from The Neighborhood Table:

  • More than 115 community groups have sponsored a meal with us each year.
  • More than 1,500 volunteers help us during the year (about 20 – 25 at each meal).
  • About 280 meals are served every Thursday and about 150 meals are served each Tuesday (the last two of the month).
  • More than 250,000 meals have been served since our first meal in December 2003.

The Neighborhood Table is a nonprofit, charitable organization mostly staffed by volunteers who provide free meals to anyone in need. Meals are served from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at the United Methodist Church, 441 Garfield Street, Wisconsin Rapids.  Take-out meals are available Thursdays only, by calling (715) 422-1980.  Note:  During the Covid-19 pandemic, no meals will be served in-house. Only to-go meals are being offered until further notice.

We share not only a meal, but also an atmosphere of hospitality and mutual respect.
