Senator Eldridge And Representative Hogan Secured $300,000 Earmark For Open Table In Massachusetts Budget

Eldridge and Hogan Secure $300K Earmark

This morning we welcomed Senator Jamie Eldridge and Rep Kate Hogan’s District Director to our site for the presentation of the $300,000 earmark which they diligently secured for us in the Massachusetts State Budget. This money will be used to help renovate the Open Table Annex at 39 Main Street in Maynard. Located adjacent to our existing pantry and offices, the new annex space will enable us to keep more food onsite and, in turn, better support our growing client base with both on-site food distribution and growing mobile programs. Thank you to Senator Eldridge, Representative Hogan, and to our staff and volunteers who spoke on our behalf about this need.
