On the Table

On The Table

On the Table 2017 was a day of community building through conversations designed to strengthen and connect our community. More than 700 hosts led conversations with over 7,000 participants! Get ready for On the Table 2018, taking place October 23, 2018. Details coming soon.

Sponsored by Silicon Valley Community Foundation, this one-day event featured meal-time discussions throughout San Mateo, Santa Clara and San Francisco counties about the housing challenages we face in Silicon Valley. It was a chance to get to know neighbors and colleagues, make new connections and inspire action.

The On the Table research team is currently collecting and analyzing information provided by each survey to inform the On the Table Silicon Valley initiative report. We will find out more about the report’s results in the second quarter of 2018, after which SVCF will be following up with you to share how we will be engaging the community in 2018. Stay in touch with SVCF by signing up for our newsletter, which you can find here.

This project is part of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation's national replication of the On the Table civic engagement initiative pioneered by The Chicago Community Trust.

Thank you to our 2017 media sponsors
