Samaritan's Table

History behind Samaritan's Table

Samaritan's Table was established in 2005 to assist struggling families in Kannapolis who are trying to hold on to their homes, support additional family members in their household, or maintain their essential household and medical expenses. The program provides an evening meal and warm fellowship opportunities that help families stretch their household income, improve nutritional intake, enjoy social interaction and receive much needed encouragement.
