At Haywood Street, everyone is invited to share their gifts and no one is asked to carry the burden all alone. These same principles make the Chefs @ Welcome Table partnership work for all involved.
Chefs donate their time and talent to plan and prepare a restaurant quality meal for friends and neighbors at the Downtown Welcome Table.
Monetary donations are collected in special envelopes (placed on tables or included in check presenter) in each participating restaurant for one month around the time of their participation
Donations are turned over to Haywood Street and chefs are reimbursed for the cost of ingredients from funds collected. Extra funds collected in the envelopes at one restaurant can be used to offset a shortfall from another restaurant.
