About

WHAT WE'RE ABOUT

We're about using home cooked food to create connections between people in neighbourhoods. We’re about enjoying the world of food variety around us in our suburbs. We're about making it natural for neighbours to sell the extra portions of their home cooked meals to each other and to earn additional income for doing so. We're about making it natural to ask, "who's cooking extra?" when you don't feel like cooking, don’t have time or don’t want to travel far. We're ultimately about turning sterile neighbourhoods of isolated living into thronging villages of daily interaction through home cooked food.


"When our mouths open for food, our hearts open in appreciation. When our mouths close to eat, our ears open to listen. Open hearts, open ears, that’s my village. With Table360, fewer people will eat alone".

— Selase Dugbaza, Director, Table360


WE HAVE ENTERED A NEW ERA

We now live in a modern sharing economy.

Table360 wants to extend the “sharing economy” to the sharing of food between individuals in our neighbourhoods. To us this would be the equivalent of turning our cities and towns into villages. The sharing of food between people is a gateway to more connected, cohesive and secure communities. Imagine the community feeling that would develop when social barriers are broken down and people confidently knock on each other’s doors to purchase food varieties either dine-in or takeaway.

By joining Table360, you are saying “yes” to being a part of this sharing movement and to creating the village feeling in your own neighbourhood.

With Table360, it’s possible no one will ever eat alone again. 


Table360 is a social enterprise

Our Vision is a world where every individual regardless of their background and circumstances, fulfils their highest, most beneficial and creative potential.

Our Mission is to invest in and empower individuals and communities to be self sufficient, and realise their highest vision of themselves. 

We will do this by:

  • Strengthening Communities - breaking down social barriers between individuals and increasing social interaction as individuals visit and purchase home cooked food from each other as a takeaway meal or as a dine-in experience at a reasonable price. 
  • Investing in Communities - re-investing a significant portion of income generated  by the Table360 Platform back into each community in the form of easy micro grants to help individuals and families rise above the barriers they face in doing better for themselves. All active members of Table360 and individuals nominated by members of Table360 can apply for grants when they are announced.
  • Building Community Social Protection - there is no greater social protection than tightly knit, responsive and self-sufficient communities. We will invest in designing and building sustainable and people-centred communities.

All members of Table360 are ambassadors of our movement to break down social barriers between people in neighbourhoods and create more cohesive and tightly knit communities.

This is a first step towards strengthening the collective will and creative potential of our communities.
