About TABLE FOR TWO

TABLE FOR TWO International (TFT) is a social initiative that addresses the opposite issues of undernutrition and obesity through a unique meal-sharing program. TFT partners with corporations, restaurants, university dining halls and other food establishments to serve healthy, low-calorie, TFT-branded meals. For each one of these healthy meals served, a small portion of the cost is donated to provide one school lunch for a student in need. It is in this way that TFT has served healthy meals to both sides of the "table" and helped to right the global food imbalance. Since its beginning in 2007, TFT has served over 70 million meals to schoolchildren in East Africa and Southeast Asia with over 800 partnering institutions throughout the world.
