Board of Directors
Knights Table is governed by a Board of Directors of (9) individuals representing the wider community and diverse group of stakeholders from the Peel Region.
Knights Table is led by the Executive Director with a small, compassionate and dedicated staff of ten employees.
The goodwill of volunteers plays a crucial role in the success of Knights Table on a daily basis. With over 3,000 volunteers dedicating their time every year, volunteers are a vital part of Knights Tables’ success.
Knights Table can trace its origins to the dedication and compassion of a local hero – Cecil Peters. Cecil was a man known for his commitment to helping the less fortunate.
In the summer of 1990, he visited the local Dairy Queen, witnessing the plight of the needy in our community first-hand. A Brampton local was sifting through the garbage, searching for a meal. Rather than shutting his eyes to the situation, Cecil decided to do something about it.
Professing that no one should have to go hungry in Brampton, he approached his Knights of Columbus Council #9235 and gained their support. Within 6 months Knights Table opened its doors and has grown into a vital resource, continuing to expand with the needs of the community.
Knights Table is the ONLY multi-food location within the Region of Peel that offers programs and services 365 days of the year without user fees, to those individuals and families impacted by hunger, poverty, and homelessness. Knights Table has played an integral role for the past twenty years in working to alleviate hunger and ensuring that no one goes hungry in Peel.
