Maggie Kane

Founder and Executive Director

Maggie Kane is the Founder and Executive Director of A Place at the Table, the first pay-what-you-can cafe in downtown Raleigh. She graduated from North Carolina State University in 2013 and began working for a nonprofit with people experiencing homelessness. By befriending many people living on the margins, she knew something needed to be done. Maggie has a heart to serve, a desire to always be inclusive, and a passion for loving people. Through her work with people on the streets, she realized the power of community, the importance of dignity, and the beauty in bringing people together over incredible food.  February 2015, A Place at the Table was birthed and Maggie never looked back. A Place at the Table finally opened in January of 2018 serving thousands of people in Raleigh with a dignified, healthy, and affordable meal. However, more importantly, a meal that feeds more than just the stomach-- it feeds your hearts, souls, and minds.  Outside of the cafe, you will catch her running marathons and eating peanut butter! But...you will mainly find her at the cafe right now loving on people all day!
