Ample Table for Everyone (ATE) is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit working to mitigate food insecurity across the five boroughs of New York City by addressing the key causes: lack of time, lack of money, inaccessibility to nutritious food, and unfamiliarity with a variety of healthy ingredients, cooking methods and recipes. Founded by six business women who lived, worked and raised families in New York City, at a time in their lives when they could tackle a social problem of mutual concern, ATE offers financial support to organizations, individuals, projects, programs and/or new models that empower New York City families to feed themselves on a more sustainable and consistent basis with an emphasis on healthy eating.
