Open Table is a community supper and pantry program operated in both Concord and Maynard Massachusetts. On Mondays and Thursdays we offer a home cooked meal, the opportunity for socializing and community and groceries from our pantry to anyone in need.
Beyond providing food resources, Open Table strives to build a community of support for our guests who face many challenges associated with poverty. Some needs are small - a notebook for a school project, a winter jacket or boots, or transportation. Many of our guests face crises in housing, fuel assistance, summer child care, and critical health situations. For these issues, we draw on the wider community of support and refer our guests to other community agencies whenever possible. We use our discretionary fund to provide assistance when other sources are not available or timely.
