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 SV will bring together thousands of local people to eat and talk about our region's housing challenges — and what we can do to solve them. Your voice matters. 

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.

Several organizations throughout the region are hosting On the Table events -- and anyone is invited! Find details here:
