Table Talk is a program of The Caring Center. Monthly meetings are as follows:
A place to come and talk about food issues that you and your family face on a daily basis. This new program will help you manage your food dollars and explore creative ways of cooking, in a "fun hands on way." Learn more...
A food drive is a way for a group to collect items for the families that are at risk of hunger. A group typically collects non-perishables, such as canned goods, and boxed items from the community. This is a simple yet practical community service initiative. Here are the "Easy Steps for a Successful Food Drive."
If you are familiar with us you probably know what "Zero by 2020" means. It represents our goal to eliminate childhood hunger in Boone County by 2020.
