We are a social enterprise based in North Vancouver that focuses on Single Mothers who live in the Lower Mainland. We have staff that travel from Abbotsford, Coquitlam, Burnaby, Vancouver and North Vancouver to be part of The Banqueting Table team. The Banqueting Table started work in 1998 and since then we have grown and expanded our services. Our main focus at The Banqueting Table is that we want to provide a stepping stone for the women who come to work for us. We want them to gain confidence and learn skills that will allow them greater opportunities in the job market. We also desire to provide them with educational scholarships, which they can apply for yearly, so that they can pursue the career of their choice. We support the belief that all things are possible for all people. We try to make the entry back into the job market very non-threatening. We do not have formal interviews. As far as culinary experience, our motto is “if you can cut a carrot, you can work with us”. We have enough highly skilled staff to teach and mentor new staff.
