The Ivy Table provides weekly meals to hundreds of disadvantaged children living 8,600 miles away in Thailand. In partnership with the Mercy Pattaya charity (a Christian-based organization in Pattaya, Thailand), we provide a hot lunch every Saturday to about 50 underprivileged children. We also sponsor monthly food distributions and community meals to about 100 families living in the slums. By means of large community food distributions and private home visits, Mercy Pattaya helps The Ivy Table is show love to the people of Thailand by providing free food to those in need.
We recently have adopted the Baan Ruemjal Church, a small Christian church, ministering to families in one of Pattaya's poorest neighborhoods. In addition to paying the electric bill to keep the church building open, we provide weekly lunches to all who attend the weekend's service, as well as bags of rice that the church is able to share with members of their community in need.
About 8 hours north of Pattaya, in Mae Sot, Thailand, The Ivy Table sponsors weekly Sunday Suppers to about 200 children living at 2 refugee schools along the Myanmar border. These schools (Love & Care and Children's Development Training Center) provide safe housing, food, and an education to refugee children who have lost their homes or have been separated/orphaned from their parents as a result of the unrest in their home country of Myanmar(Burma).
We are blessed to partner with such incredible organizations to help meet both the physical and spiritual needs of people living half way across the world.
Help us feed the people of Thailand. As a 501(c)(3), all donations to The Ivy Table are tax-deductible with the IRS.
Take an inside look at one of our food distributions in Pattaya, Thailand. Dozens of volunteers spend 3 days shopping, packing, cooking. On the day of distribution, people from the community begin arriving early in the morning for a spot in line. They sit outside on the sidewalk in the 100 degree heat all day long, not wanting to miss their chance to receive a free handout. By early afternoon, hundreds have gathered and the police arrive to help with crowd control. Each person in line receives a bag of rice, fresh eggs, cooking oil, fish sauce, canned fish, noodles, snacks, water bottles, and a hot meal. What a blessing to be the hands and feet of Jesus!
