CCFWG established the Kitchen Table Award in 2011 to honor a Chester County woman who represents the mission and values of CCFWG. Its recipient is an “outstanding Chester County woman who has made substantive contributions through service and/or philanthropy to improve the lives of women and girls through her own time, or talents, or resources.” The award is named to celebrate the genesis of CCFWG: the many conversations held around kitchen tables, board tables, and coffee tables that led to the formation of the organization in 1996.
