Change the World, One Healthy Meal at a Time: Launch TABLE FOR TWO (TFT) On Your College Campus!

Did you know that the average American consumes over 3,800 calories a day? Imagine if you could take some of those excess calories and transport them halfway across the world, to a remote village in rural Tanzania…

That’s essentially what TABLE FOR TWO (TFT) does. There are approximately 1 billion people in the world who don’t have access to adequate food and nutrition. On the other hand, a roughly equal number suffer from issues related to overconsumption (e.g. diabetes, obesity, and other “lifestyle-related diseases”).

TFT simultaneously addresses these opposing issues through a simple meal. TFT partners with corporate cafeterias, university dining halls and restaurants, designating a healthy TFT meal. 25 cents of the proceeds is used to provide one school meal in sub-Saharan Africa. So by choosing the TFT option, you benefit from the healthy meal while at the same time providing the gift of a warm meal to a child halfway across the world.
