Table Alchemy

Table Alchemy promotes healthy habits, entrepreneurialism, enhanced use and function of social spaces, introductions to foods and individuals, and serves as a mechanism for repeated forms of these interactions. All of this has been possible through the creation of a community café in a public space where 4 course meals are created, cooked, served and shared by members of the community. Everything from the tables we sit at to the plates we eat from have been made in collaboration with community members. The Village Table, the inaugural program of Table Alchemy, led to ongoing and functional systems of influence revolving around the concept of food as the highest form of community engagement and personal influence.
