The Welcome Table is both a website and an organization for food enthusiasts, food workers and advocates dedicated to a responsible food system. Join the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United and us to learn more, support responsible restaurants through the National Diners’ Guide & smartphone app, and advocate for change in the food system.
We are on the cusp of creating real change for food workers and the food system in America; legislators across America are currently considering proposals ro raise the minimum wage and provide paid sick days, and to regulate food companies, forcing them to provide healthier, more environmentally-sustainable food.
All of us – workers, employers, and eaters – have a stake in encouraging a sustainable food system and thriving local economies. By raising the wage and benefits floor, millions of workers across the food chain will have enough to spend on the basics, and boost the economy in the process by circulating more money in local economies. So this year, to eat just, join us at thewelcometable.net
