Tender Table is a storytelling platform featuring women, trans, and nonbinary folks who are black, indigenous, or people of color. We seek out narratives about the sweet, savory, sour, and bitter relationships to food and its connections to identity, memory, and community.

At Tender Table, all are welcome — expect to be immersed in stories, and sample delicious food prepared by the speakers.

Tender Table provides compensation to all presenters and contributors we work with for their time and labor — thank you in advance for your donations.
