The Liz Button Full Plate Fund will help ensure that there is always enough at the Downtown Welcome Table, and a seat at the table for everyone.  

It honors the passion, energy and creativity of Liz Button, founder and organizer of Chefs @ Downtown Welcome Table. This creative partnership  harnesses the rich talent within Asheville’s restaurant industry for the common good, to care for vulnerable neighbors and strengthen community for the benefit of all.


“In the restaurant industry…..we get what it means to be hungry, possibly literally at one time or another, and always figuratively for friends/family and someone to share a meal with. That’s our religion, and it’s why we are happy to partner with Downtown Welcome Table.” — Liz Button, Heirloom Hospitality Group
