Open Table is a wonderful all volunteer, not-for-profit organization that provides healthy food, friendship and support to those in need in our communities. This includes a dinner and food pantry service that takes place every Monday night at the Clock Tower Place in Maynard.
Volunteer Coordinator (VC): We are looking for an outward going, organized person who is comfortable using the computer to help us recruit and schedule individuals to either serve dinners, work in the food pantry or clean-up on Monday nights. You can schedule and recruit from the convenience of your home, which typically involves about 5 hours a week. In addition, working with a VC assistant, you will share responsibility for being onsite Mondays from 4:30-6:00 PM to welcome volunteers. It’s a fun position, and a great way to meet new people.
Guest Service Liaison: Many of the guests that attend our dinner/pantry service need support in other areas as well and we try to put them in touch with agencies that may be able to assist. This important position involves working with a dynamic team of individuals who discuss issues with our guests and make referrals where possible. It involves about 2-5 hours a week. Experience in social work, community outreach or public health is helpful, although not necessary.
Check-in Support: If you like to meet new people, enjoy working with the public and are comfortable multi-tasking, this role is for you. You will attend our Monday night dinner/pantry service from 4:00-7:00 PM, greeting and checking-in our guests as they arrive.
Join us as we help others. It’s a very rewarding experience!
