Community Table Kitchen demonstrates what is possible in when mission and business marry. Opened in 2013, and often described as the most dynamic kitchen in Boulder, Community Table Kitchen transforms lives one bite at a time.

We have a triple bottom line.

First, at Community Table Kitchen we produce meals for hungry people who have no other access to food.  We prepare that meals are healthy, nutritious and balanced by cooking in real-time, from scratch. We partner with our local food bank, Community Food Share, to access donated ingredients and collaborate with our own Community Table meal program hosted at Path to Home to serve over 80,000 meals a year to people experiencing homelessness.

Second, Community Table Kitchen creates employment opportunities by providing jobs and job training for Ready to Work trainees. We offer meaningful paid work that builds a resume and real-world work experience. Through a mix of on-the-job and classroom training, Community Table Kitchen trainees are taught knife skills, food prep and production, and safe food handling. Trainees complete the ServSafe certification prior to graduating into a full-time food service job.

Third, under the leadership of Executive Chef John Trejo, Community Table Kitchen runs three market-based lines of business - catering, wholesale and café operations. We offer customers competitive, top notch quality and service. Through these ventures, Community Table Kitchen earns revenue to support operations and our social mission.

Alan Halpern

Executive Director Congregation Har HaShem

Community Table catered a dinner in celebration of our Rabbi Emerita’s 25th anniversary in the clergy. Given her commitment to social action and our congregation’s long partnership with community organizations like Bridge House and BOHO, Community Table was the ideal partner because the choice enacted our values in addition to being a superb meal. The food was great. The menu accommodated our dietary restrictions and requirements. The price was fair. The staff were attentive. Everyone seemed to enjoy the dinner. Service went quickly. We couldn’t be happier.

Alan Culpepper

Conference of World Affairs

You all were wonderful to work once again. Thank you for being so accommodating and the food was outstanding! We have heard nothing but great feedback on the meals you catered. The event was widely successful this year with record attendance numbers, we are really proud of the effort and enjoying some down time! Thank You,

Bill Obermeier

Executive Director of Dariy Arts Center

It was wonderful working with you and Bridge House. Everyone did a terrific job and the food was excellent. I'm looking forward to the next opportunity to work together. You might also like this quote from one of our patrons in attendance last night: "It was the best I've been to in Boulder because the caterers passed food to patrons as they stood in line to check in, the music was already playing when the patrons showed up which was welcoming, and the food was the best I've had at an event in Boulder. Cheers!

We have used them on numerous occasions and the food has received rave reviews! The added bonus is that you are supporting a local organization that is helping and doing so much good!
