TABLE FOR TWO USA (TFT-USA) is a 501(C)(3) organization that addresses the opposite issues of hunger and obesity through a unique meal-sharing program.
In our world of 7 billion, 1 billion suffer from hunger while another 2 billion suffer from obesity and other health issues related to unhealthy eating. TABLE FOR TWO USA (TFT) rights this global food imbalance through a unique meal-sharing program. TFT partners with corporations, restaurants, schools and other food establishments to serve healthy, low-calorie, TFT- branded meals. For each one of these healthy meals served, $0.25 is donated to provide one school meal for a child in need in East Africa and low income communities in the US. It is in this way that TFT has served healthy meals to both sides of the "table" and helped to right the global food imbalance.
Over 40 million healthy school meals have been served to date thanks to over 700 TFT global partner corporations, government offices, schools, restaurants, and convenience store chains implementing our program in their cafeterias and establishments. TFT partnering organizations can be found in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Vietnam, Taiwan, U.S.A., U.K., Norway, France, Italy, Switzerland, and Saudi Arabia.
