The significance of the this grant signifies the growing partnership between the City of Westminster and Community Table. The award of $5,000 more than doubles the support provided for 2017 and reflects the rise in the number of Westminster households seeking assistance.

Community Table has served Westminster residents in need for over 35 years. In 2016, Community Table assisted 629 Westminster households (a total of 1,467 people) experiencing hunger. Additionally, 24 Westminster citizens worked with the Bridges to Opportunity program to increase their own self-sufficiency.
