Table for Two: Connecting the World by Sharing a Meal

What if you could do something good for yourself and do something even better for someone else with the effortless of choice of what to eat? That is the simple but powerful logic behind Table for Two (TFT), a Tokyo-based nonprofit. TFT earns ¥20 for every healthy, TFT-designated meal sold in over 250 corporate cafeterias, restaurants, and convenience stores in Japan, which in turn is spent to subsidize nutritious lunches for school-aged children in Africa. TFT is expanding to the U.S. beginning with Columbia University and the Kitano Hotel in New York. Masa Kogure, Director of TFT International, speaks about TFT’s dual mission to fight hunger and malnutrition in developing countries and obesity and diabetes in Japan and U.S.

Moderated by Dan Chapman, Managing Director, Loan Syndicate and Sales, U.S. Bank.

Followed by a reception with TFT-inspired gourmet dishes catered by Wasan.
