Open Table Announces Project DASH Grant from DoorDash

Grant Supports Food Delivery Program

Concord and Maynard, MA (February 8, 2024) – Open Table, the MetroWest charity dedicated to fighting hunger and building healthy communities, announced today that it has received a Project DASH Impact Grant. Project DASH is DoorDash’s initiative to empower food banks, food pantries, and other social impact organizations to deliver charitable food to people experiencing food insecurity.

This grant will support Open Table’s delivery programs, facilitating the transportation of fresh and nutritious food to community members. “We recognize the vital importance of food delivery for our clients who face transportation and mobility challenges,” stated Alexandera DePalo, Executive Director of Open Table. “With DoorDash’s support, we can ensure that our most vulnerable clients have consistent access to wholesome, fresh food.”

“We’re proud to partner with Open Table,” said Daniel Riff, Head of DoorDash Drive Government and Nonprofit. “Each day, our partners across the U.S. work to broaden food access in multiple ways, including by leveraging home delivery. Project DASH helps organizations break down barriers to access and serve vulnerable populations in a convenient and dignified way.
