Harvest Trussell Tables

Turn your trestle table into a Trussell Table this Harvest.

As well as being a time of celebration and gratitude, Harvest is an opportunity for your church to support people from all backgrounds, especially those experiencing hardship.

There’s a strong link between hunger and social isolation. Hosting a Trussell Table is all about connection, inclusion and community.

Trestle tables are often used in many ways across the life of a church community, particularly to share food. We invite you to turn your trestle tables into a “Trussell table” as part of your Harvest celebrations, as well as inspiring your congregation and guests to use their collective voice to call for change.
