Open Table is managed by an active Board of Directors, whose members represent diverse backgrounds in business, law, public relations, education, healthcare and technology. Many have extensive volunteer experience either with Open Table, with other organizations, or both.

Day to day operations of the Open Table pantries and community dinners are run by the Open Table Operations team, whose members contribute significant hours each week to working with our over 600 volunteers to assure that our guests are served each week. View the organization chart here:
