Saturday Pantry Opens for Government Workers without Pay

Open Table volunteers and board members mobilized quickly to open a special Saturday pantry service on January 19th for workers affected by the government shutdown. Families from Hanscom AFB as well as others found a fully stocked market of food choices along with diapers, Kid’s Bags with snacks, and bunches of flowers, all donated from local organizations. A Coast Guard family sent us this afterwards: “I want to say thank you for your amazing pantry and support…this was amazingly thoughtful and our family thanks you!”

A big thank you to Rose Saia, OT Pantry Director who put in many hours to be sure that this special pantry day was a success and to the team of operations leaders who willingly gave up a Saturday to help.
