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.

Highlights from The Neighborhood Table:

  • More than 100 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 375 meals are served every Thursday and about 170 meals are served each Tuesday (the last two of the month).
  • More than 200,000 meals have been served since our first meal in December 2003.

The Neighborhood Table is a nonprofit, charitable organization staffed by volunteers who provide free meals to anyone in need. Meals are served from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. at St. John’s Episcopal Church, 320 Oak Street, Wisconsin Rapids, until Tuesday, December 30, 2014. Starting Thursday, January 1, 2015, meals will be served at the United Methodist Church, 441 Garfield Street, Wisconsin Rapids. Take-out meals are available Thursdays only, by calling (715) 422-1980.

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

The Neighborhood Table services the communities of Wisconsin Rapids, Nekoosa, Port Edwards, and surrounding areas in central Wisconsin.
