The Largest Table is one of St. John’s most significant
missions of outreach and service.
Downtown Columbus is a rich combination of people – office workers, business executives, local residents, and our homeless or marginally housed neighbors. Every Wednesday, our committed group of volunteers feed 200 “in need” individuals and families a hot, home-cooked meal, in community with other guests from downtown – and we’ve been doing this faithfully for more than 10 years.
Our Wednesday volunteers are a diverse group – including life long members of St. John’s, active retirees, local church youth groups, school groups, as well as people from other businesses and organizations. Some people come from different faith traditions to serve at The Largest Table, and here at St. John’s, we work with – not against – people from other traditions. Why? Because God is still speaking, and we are still listening!
Recently, we moved The Largest Table to Trinity Episcopal Church. They have a beautiful indoor dining room, and are conveniently located right across from the Ohio Statehouse at 125 Broad Street.
Our greatest need? Volunteers!
Each year we serve more guests, so we’ve created multiple teams of volunteers each week to manage this growing ministry. Our volunteers come together starting on Tuesday, to begin meal preparations, and opportunities continue on Wednesday for additional meal prep,
setup, service and clean up.

A heartfelt thankfulness that make us generous. Less as a duty than as the least we can do in response to all
God does for us.

life’s journey, you will be warmly welcomed and accepted at St. John’s.
