What is At the Table Colorado?

Due to the current health challenges Colorado and our country are facing from COVID-19, all in person At the Table Colorado conversations have been postponed until further notice. We are rescheduling our events, whenever possible, as virtual meetings and will have more details available soon.

When I was a boy and I would see things scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

To this day, especially in times of “disaster”, I remember my mother’s words and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers-so many caring people in this world.

Volunteers Needed to Sew Face Masks

Face masks are needed for Home Health Care Workers that provide support to seniors, the disabled and those with chronic health conditions. Their efforts benefit all of us, by keeping their clients, healthy, in their own homes and out of the hospital system, but this puts the workers at risk, as well as their families, if they are exposed to anything contagious.

We are seeking volunteers that can sew and are willing to make masks.The masks will not be used in hospitals or medical offices, but by home caretakers and their clients; they may also be used by families/homes where someone has the flu or COVID, with mild symptoms, and the patient remains at home.

For additional project details, to review the pattern/materials list or to volunteer for the project, please visit the At the Table Colorado Quarantine Toolkit

What is At the Table Colorado?

At the Table Colorado (ATTC) is a grassroots movement that brings people from all walks of life together, for a series of free, community-wide events, to create more sustainable, stronger and vibrant neighborhoods, while educating people on civic and social issues.

The Table concept has become a national movement, inspiring grassroots conversations across the country in cities such as: Columbus OH, The Big Table; Tallahassee FL, The Longest Table and Lexington KY, On the Table. At the Table Colorado is the first statewide Table conversation and a partner in the National On the Table Learning Network founded by the Chicago Community Trust.

How it works:

Volunteers throughout each neighborhood/community/region host conversations/events. Anyone can host a Table, really, anyone!

Who participates:

Everyone and anyone — neighborhood associations, senior citizens, libraries, businesses, students, civic groups, schools, houses of worship, refugees, young professionals, the homeless population and nonprofits; everyone is welcome…literally, everyone!


At the Table Colorado is currently updating our community plans and activities in light of the challenges we all face due to COVID-19. In collaboration with our Table partners we are developing opportunities to connect and strengthen our communities while respecting the need for social distancing.
