Let's Make a Change.
Our mission is to end hunger and improve nutritional security on Cape Cod by breaking down the barriers of access to both prepared meals and education.
To continue fulfilling our mission, our immediate goal is to raise $500,000 through a capital campaign that began in the fall of 2021. This will secure the purchase of the property at 1338 Route 28 in South Yarmouth (former Riverway Lobster House). When the property is purchased, Jason Siscoe, the current and community-minded owner, will loan back $500,000 in operating capital to the Family Table Collaborative, which will cover all operating expenses for the first year.
All profits from the café & tavern, local maker's market, kitchen space rental, special events and classes will go to running, sustaining, and growing the Family Table Collaborative.
Where we started
Raised so far to operationalize our organization
Needed to secure the mortgage at 1338 Route 28
Loaned back to us in in operating capital with property purchase
Total goal to become a self-sustaining nonprofit by 2024
Your donation can help us raise the $500,000 needed to secure the mortgage at 1338 Main Street in Yarmouth (formerly the Riverway Lobster House). Once we've secured the mortgage, the current owner will loan us back $500,000 to cover the first year of operating expenses. This is a unique model that combines philanthropy and social entrepreneurship to create real, sustainable change! Together, we can solve the problem of hunger and nutritional security on Cape Cod.
By addressing access, distribution and education, we can
solve the food security challenges we face in our community.
What does a self-sustaining nonprofit look like?
A nonprofit that isn't continually engaging in fundraising activities? Yes. Beyond our capital campaign to allow us to buy the property and build out our offerings, profits from The Commons at Riverway will be reinvested to run, sustain and grow the Family Table Collaborative.
