Rescuing food...Fighting Food Insecurity
WHO WE ARE
Rachel's Table is a volunteer-based organization dedicated to reducing food waste and helping those in need. We collect unserved and unsold prepared and perishable food from various establishments such as restaurants, markets, bakeries, senior centers, and private food donors. This excess food, which would otherwise be wasted, is then distributed to 30 shelters, soup kitchens, and neighborhood pantries that serve individuals facing food insecurity. Rachel's Table relies on the efforts of over 70 volunteers who use their own vehicles to transport the donated food. The organization operates in Greater Worcester and aims to feed the hungry while preventing valuable and nourishing food from going to waste.
We are one of the many programs of the Jewish Federation of Central Massahusetts
Over the past 35 years Rachel's Table has distributed over 14 million pounds of food, at no cost, to 30 local shelters, pantries, and soup kitchens. Through our Children's Milk Fund we purchase at least 600 gallons of milk each week from a local dairy and distribute it to 20 different agencies in Worcester, MA. This is the only source of donated milk in the area.
Hunger and the need for food continues to rise.
We thank you for your donation to help our efforts.
