Jeanine Kopaska Broek


Jeanine’s passion for growing food is deeply rooted in her growing up with a big garden in central Iowa. She now knows that going out hunting for wild raspberries and mulberries was foraging before that was a thing. Jeanine has holds an MPH in Community Health Education (CUNY – Hunter College) and has been farming for 16 years. She has more than 20 years of experience in education, working students in higher education and has taught high school and kindergarten. Jeanine loves camping and the slower things of life like hand washing dishes and hanging her clothes on the line. Working with The Table has fulfilled her dream of sharing vegetables from her bicycle.

Craig Broek


Craig began his professional career in pastoral ministry in Ridgewood, NJ. After serving for 6+ years, he and Jeanine began to pursue a vision of non-traditional ministry. His passion to see people developing in their faith journey shapes his work and community interaction. He enjoys meeting people and building relationships especially through sports and recreational activities, like umpiring and coaching. Craig has also been trained as a Level 1 StrengthsFinder Coach.

In his free time Craig enjoys all sports, taking on new projects, reading, cooking, and home brewing.

Craig and Jeanine have been married since 1999 and have two children.

“I have loved partnering with the table for the past 7 years.  We love having a garden in the front of our yard, plus providing food for the community and the connection it allows us to have with The Table.” – Amy Shoukas
