The Table

Bus Tables

Help in The Table by making sure tables are cleared to allow new guests to be seated and share a meal with other members of the Community. This is a great service opportunity for the whole family!


Help in The Table by making sure plates are ready to leave the kitchen to be serves to the 3,500 guests that we serve dinner to every year at CFTC. Volunteers must be 16+ to serve in this area.


Be the first face guests see as they enter the table as a Greeter/Host. Share your welcoming smile and demeanor and build community in line as our neighbors wait to be seated. Make sure guests receive dinner, drinks, and anything else they may need so they can share a community meal together. This is a great volunteer opportunity for the whole family!


Sit at a table and facilitate conversations & make new friends with neighbors from all over the community as you share a meal together. Perfect for our most hospitable volunteers!

Help us create a sustainable culture at CFTC as we work to recycle and compost most of our trash! We use composted materials in community gardens that grow some of CFTC’s supplies!

We also need some to help with setting up equipment and unloading trucks.
