The Neighborhood Table

1st-4th Thursdays of the month

Doors open at 5:30pm // Dinner served at 6pm

A free community dinner open to all. Weather permitting during the summer, TNT meets outside for a block party in the Second Harvest parking lot.  Each week is a little different with community awareness speakers, important resources from partner organizations, social work services, and more.  Don’t need community resources? No problem, we’d love to share a table with you. No RSVP needed- just drop in! We hope to see you there.

There is no Neighborhood Table in the instance of the fifth Thursdays of the month.

Dinners are provided on a rotating basis by volunteers from Faith UMC, Glenshaw Presbyterian, Adat Shalom, and Aspinwall Presbyterian Church. 

For more information, contact Outreach Director, Kathleen Stanley.
