On the Table

On The Table

On the Table is a day of community building through conversations designed to strengthen and connect our community. Join the conversation on Wednesday, Nov. 15!

On the Table Silicon Valley will bring together thousands of local people to eat and talk about our region's housing crisis — and what we can do to solve it. Your voice matters. Join us for On the Table.

Sponsored by Silicon Valley Community Foundation, this one-day event will feature meal-time discussions throughout San Mateo and Santa Clara counties on Nov. 15. It's a chance to get to know neighbors and colleagues, make new connections and inspire action.

Organizations: Host an event that's open to the public

Organizations/companies are also welcome to host larger, public events. SVCF will support hosts of these public conversations, and list the events on our website so that community members may register to attend. Apply to host a public event, and one of our On the Table team members will connect with you about next steps.

Later this summer, we will provide information about On the Table Silicon Valley conversations that are open to the public. Please check back then for more information!
