Master's Table

The Master’s Table Soup Kitchen serves a hot lunch to more than 325 hungry people every day, 365 days per year in downtown Augusta. Thanks to the kindness and support of our local community, we opened the doors to a brand new, 6,200 square foot facility in 2010, complete with prayer rooms, an organic community garden, and indoor seating for 152 guests. It costs $630 per day to operate the Master’s Table, and you can join the Master’s Society for just $1 per day.

THE PEOPLE WE SERVE

THE MAJORITY OF GUESTS AT THE MASTER’S TABLE ARE NOT HOMELESS. WHETHER FROM LOSING A JOB OR STRUGGLING WITH MEDICAL BILLS, THE TRUTH IS THAT MOST GUESTS SIMPLY CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY FOR FOOD. NO MATTER WHO WALKS THROUGH OUR DOORS, EVERY SINGLE GUEST HAS A UNIQUE STORY TO TELL. FOR THIS REASON, WE ENCOURAGE ALL VOLUNTEERS AND VISITORS OF THE MASTER’S TABLE TO SIT DOWN WITH A GUEST FOR A FEW MINUTES, SMILE, AND LISTEN.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

MORE THAN 40 VOLUNTEER POSITIONS ARE AVAILABLE EACH DAY AT THE MASTER’S TABLE, WHICH MAKES IT THE PERFECT PLACE TO COME AS AN INDIVIDUAL, WITH YOUR FAMILY OR AS A GROUP. TEAM BUILDING DAYS ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FOR LOCAL BUSINESSES AND SERVICE GROUPS, AND ARE CUSTOMIZABLE TO MEET THE UNIQUE NEEDS OF YOUR TEAM. YOU CAN ALSO JOIN THE MASTER’S SOCIETY WITH A GIFT OF JUST $1 PER DAY FOR A CALENDAR YEAR.
