The Carpenter's Table
Community Outreach Center
The Carpenter's Table was formed in 2001, by concerned people from Tyger River Presbyterian Church, Joy Lutheran Church, and Nazareth Presbyterian Church. A food pantry was established to provide assistance to people in need on the west side of Spartanburg County. In 2004, there were just 32 families served by the food pantry. Currently, our Outreach Center serves hundreds of households each month.
Our primary goal is to lessen hunger in our Upstate community by distributing food to those in need while providing information about nutritional/dietary issues and preserving the dignity of those served.
