We provide a welcoming community of support and assistance to families and individuals, including many seniors and children in central Middlesex county, and have a team of diverse, committed and passionate staff and volunteers.

Our Pantry is OPEN!

Our pantry is operating as an open-air drive-thru service. Volunteers bring pre-packed bags of groceries to cars, respecting social distancing guidelines.

Our hours at our main facility (33 Main St) are:

We also have monthly and bi-weekly mobile pantries in partnership with agencies in several towns.

New clients are welcome!
All clients should reside in our service area.

Select what items you would like ahead of time with our online ordering system. Order before your appointment time to have your groceries packed and ready for you on arrival. Order online HERE.

We are open rain or shine to assure no one goes hungry. In case of thunder & lightning, we will temporarily suspend deliveries and ask that guests park until the threat has passed; all will be served when we are able to resume.

Pantry distribution will be available in the Maynard Municipal Parking Lot located between Summer Street and Main Street. Please enter from Summer Street (across from the Fine Arts Theater). Guests will remain in their cars; volunteers will take your order and load grocery bags into the trunk of your car.

If you typically come to Open Table by public transportation, bike, walking, etc, please come to the walk-up table in front of our building at 33 Main Street, Maynard to receive your groceries.

If you are unable to attend any of our pantry hours or are quarantined due to COVID, other options may be available. Please contact us at [email protected] with any questions.
