Help our Eastern North Carolina neighbors recover from the storm. With just a few clicks, you can buy tickets, sign up to volunteer, make a donation and purchase t-shirts. Scott Crawford of Crawford & Son and a team of talented chefs and community volunteers have put together a unique lunch to unite our community and lend a hand to our neighbors in the east.

All proceeds raised will go to support businesses, families and communities impacted by Hurricane Florence.

“The Sunday Supper” is sponsored by The Supper Table, Inc., a North Carolina nonprofit corporation. (Application for tax exemption under I.R.C. 501(c)(3) has been filed with the Internal Revenue Service.) EIN#82-3054299

The Sunday Supper is dedicated to bringing people together through the supper table, born out of a national award-winning event (PRSA Non-profit Event of the Year 2016) in

November 2016, where 1,000 people were fed from a two-city-block-long table on Fayetteville Street in Raleigh, North Carolina. The Sunday Supper aims to spread the community supper table concept to cities and towns throughout America with the hope of restoring unity.

Whether your community has experienced a sudden crisis, is weathering a natural disaster or simply wants greater accord, The Sunday Supper can be a significant fundraising event to help those in need or a touching way to heal and unite your community.

Or, as in our case, both.

Wanting to do all we can to see the remarkable success of The Sunday Supper spread to communities across the country, we’ve created a toolkit that we’re all too happy to share. It will equip you with everything you need in order to plan and implement the event in your area.

And having cut our teeth on our own supper, we know you might want some counsel and support along the way — and we’re happy to share that, too.

These are our gifts to you. Because together, we can find common ground.

our history

The situation that spawned the movement

In early October 2016, one of North Carolina’s most destructive hurricanes tore into the eastern part of the state, causing catastrophic flooding and over $1.5 billion in devastation.

At the same time, our country and our state were thrust into an acrimonious election cycle, causing rifts among friends, families, churches and businesses.

We wanted to do something to help both situations. We found a way by creating

The Sunday Supper.

Less than 30 days later, under a 50-foot American flag hung from a city fire truck, 1,000 people joined hands around the largest communal dining table North Carolina had ever set. They put their differences aside to break bread together in support of their suffering neighbors to the east.

 

The Sunday Supper raised more than $189,000 for long-term disaster relief and earned universal praise. Over 300 volunteers made this memorable event possible by organizing, fundraising, hosting and donating goods and services.

 
What began as something I didn’t have time for, became an experience I’ll never forget.
