Guest Programs

Open Table has a variety of guest programs in three locations to support those in need. We also hope to provide a welcoming, friendly environment for all who wish to join us.

  • Community Dinners
    At our community dinners, held at our Concord and Maynard locations, guests are served a healthy and nutritious meal, including dessert and coffee.
  • Pantry Shopping
    Pantry Shopping is provided at our Maynard locations. Pantry items include bags of non-perishable groceries, fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products and other staples.
  • Support Services
    Open Table works with partnering organizations to provide guests with support services such as legal and medical advice, information about housing or fuel assistance, and other services.
