Father's Table

The Father’s Table began in 1968 at First Baptist Church on Washington Street in High Point. We currently serve three meals a day, six days a week, and breakfast and dinner on Sunday, to the homeless and less fortunate in High Point. There are no stipulations as to who is served as we truly offer an “open door” to those who are hungry. Over 5,000 meals per month are donated, prepared, and served by local churches, organizations, businesses, and community volunteers. The Father's Table makes it possible for those in need including men, women, and children of all ages, to receive a nutritious meal. Breakfast 8-9 am, Lunch 12-1 pm, Dinner 6-7 pm (to go boxes only during covid-19)

Population(s) Served
Extremely poor people
Homeless people
