About Us

Building A Better Chicagoland. Together.

Bigger Table is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization bringing together the food & beverage industry to address hunger, unemployment, and inclusive economic development in Chicagoland. A gift to Bigger Table today makes a difference during this time of food crisis within our communities, helping. Your support can help hundreds of thousands of people who face food insecurity.  


Launched in 2020 by the Chicagoland Food & Beverage Network (CFBN), Bigger Table focuses on uncovering opportunities within the food & beverage industry to collaborate and deliver charitable and economic growth initiatives. Bigger Table connects industry partners who otherwise would not work together, to find new philanthropic paths and deliver consumer-ready product where and when it is needed most. Bigger Table promotes long-term employment and growth within the industry. 

Bigger Table does not compete with food banks, distribution centers, or industry players; instead, we connect them together, unlocking otherwise invisible opportunities that lie within these industries and their supply chains. By connecting disparate partners under a common goal to create new value for the public good.

Our Mission

Drive inclusive economic growth in Chicagoland by bringing together the region’s food & beverage industry to explore, create, and leverage collaborative opportunities.
