Help us Celebrate 35 Years of Food & Friendship

In April, Open Table will celebrate our 35th birthday – and we would not be here without YOU!

For 35 years, your generous support has made it possible for us to offer fresh and healthy food to our neighbors in need. Today that need is great, and we are serving more members of our community than ever before.

As we mark this milestone, we hope you will join us in our commitment to addressing local hunger. Together, we can continue to provide fresh groceries and healthy prepared meals to thousands of people in our community.

The meals and the people have changed my life” Mary, Wayland client
