Every year, your support helps us advance our mission: to end hunger in our local community by providing healthy food in ways that respect the dignity and diversity of those served. This year that support is even more crucial because our food programs are facing greater demand than ever before.
“What you do for people is more than just food, you support from the heart.” — Iryna, client
Today, a staggering one-third of households with children in Eastern Massachusetts are experiencing food insecurity. Many families and individuals are struggling to make ends meet and turning to food pantries for help. This is evident at Open Table, where we have increased our food distribution by 37% in 2023.
Your donation helps us meet this new demand and take hunger off the table.
This past year we reached deeper into local communities through new partnerships and increased our connection to clients through our drive-thru pantry and mobile delivery programs. Your donation makes it possible to offer prepared meals, fresh produce, eggs, milk, proteins, and more to those who rely on this essential support.
“Honestly, I could not manage without Open Table to get me through the month. It has been a life saver for me and my son.” — Heidi, Harvard client
We are here to serve people who never expected to need food assistance: those with medical issues, unexpected job losses, or other unanticipated circumstances.
Your generosity offers hope and compassion during a difficult time.

We, and our clients, are profoundly grateful.
