Open Table offers weekly community supper programs and food pantries in Concord and Maynard to more than 300 guests. Founded in 1989, it provides a welcoming community of support and assistance to families and individuals, including many seniors and children – open to all who come.
Open Table has a variety of guest programs in two locations to support those in need.
Dinners and Pantries
At the community supper, guests are served a healthy and nutritious meal, including dessert and coffee.
Pantry items include bags of non-perishable groceries, fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products and other staples.
Holidays and Snow Days:
Open table is closed on Memorial Day, Labor Day, and Christmas day. Community suppers and food pantries are offered on all other Monday and Thursday holidays. Open Table is closed if the Maynard Public Schools (Mondays) or the Concord Public Schools (Thursdays) are closed for a snow day.
There are many different jobs to do, from food pick ups to preparing dinners to providing transportation. College and high school students and adults prepare dinners, shop for food, pick up food donations, assist in the pantry, serve dinners, provide transportation, organize food drives and more. Volunteers at our facilities must be of at least high school age. Families and groups of younger volunteers, such as scout troops and school groups, bake breads, create centerpieces, make ”kids bags” and run food drives. See the website for details.
