Open Table, which has served the greater Maynard community for seven years, is moving to a new location. Beginning on Monday, November 9th they will be located on the first floor of the former Coolidge School at 12 Bancroft Street. Andrew Scribner-MacLean, Maynard’s Assistant Town Administrator, has been instrumental in assisting Open Table in finding a new location and in making the former school available to us. “Open Table provides an important service to this community, and the Town is thrilled to be able to support this organization as it transitions to a new location”, MacLean said.
Open Table pantry serves an average of 100 families each week, providing them with meat, eggs, dairy products, fresh produce and baked goods, in addition to package non-perishable food and household items. An all volunteer organization, Open Table welcomes all comers to both the food pantry and to their community dinner which is currently served at the Sudbury United Methodist Church on Route 27 on Tuesday evenings at 6 p.m.
While they are continuing to look for a permanent location in the Maynard area where they can provide both the dinner and the food pantry, the managers of Open Table “are extremely grateful to both the Town of Maynard and the Sudbury United Methodist Church” for providing them with temporary locations where they can continue to offer this critical service to those in need.
