You can now make Tax-Deductible Donations to Trojan Table

Last updated 11/27/2023

Trojan Table is a monthly home cooked or catered dinner for students provided by USC retirees, alumni, staff and faculty. Trojan Table is an act of caring and nurturing that offers USC students a chance to relax, meet new people, and communicate with adults who have no agenda other than listening and providing food.

Here is what students who attend Trojan Table have to say: “Thank you for putting your time and effort to feed hungry students! …I would like to personally connect! I’m a first gen student so I don’t have many people in my pocket who’ve been through college already… I liked the intention behind the food…wonderful food and nice people… I would love a chance to interact with all of you more. Your warm hospitality gave us a true feeling of home today!”

This semester, we provided four more Trojan Table dinners for our USC students. In 2021-2022, we served almost 1,000 students with home style meals. We offered warm, welcoming, intergenerational conversations and a caring spirit. The students responded with smiles and gratefulness and wanted more time for conversation. We hope to continue this new tradition in the years to come.

Thanks to the many who donated to help us fund this monthly dinner. We serve around 200 students each month with a variety of healthy and substantial meals. This costs about $15 per student. If you would like to help us fund the student meals, please consider donating so that we can continue this new tradition.
