we send you our thanks and wish you holiday cheer!
Filling Their Holidays with Joy
This week, more than 200 volunteers will lend a hand, make home deliveries, and welcome guests to the market to "shop" for their Thanksgiving turkeys and fixings. To help make their table extra special and personal, every guest will also receive a $10 gift card to a local grocery store.
Next month, Christmas cheer is abound! The market will be filled with holiday groceries and will be open for special holiday hours from December 12th - 16th. Santa comes to the Wednesday Meal for dinner, pictures and Christmas carols on December 13!
For volunteer opportunities or to sign up for holiday groceries, please call our office, 978-388-1907. And just a reminder, ONT will be closed November 23-26 and December 24-January 1 to give our volunteers and staff a well-deserved rest!
Filing One Million Plates this Year!
Every $1 Fills 1 More Plate
As a member of the ONT community, you believe that everyone in our community should have access to food. And you believe that ONT can make this possible and fight hunger in our community. As you reflect on all you are thankful for this holiday season, know that Our Neighbors’ Table is grateful for the support we receive from the community. We could not fill 1 million plates without you, as every $1 donated fills one more plate. Can we count on your gift to keep those plates full? On behalf of those we serve, thank you for giving the gift of food security. #platefull #grateful
“Everyone at Our Neighbors’ Table makes me feel normal when I come here. No one makes you feel bad for needing help.”
Full Bellies for All Children
Our Summer Lunch Program kept 388 children fed during the summer months. Through our new partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of the Lower Merrimack Valley, outreach through local schools and expanded programs in our market, 140 families who had never been to ONT before found their way to our doors and to the help they need to keep their kids healthy and growing all year-round.
ONT is thankful for all of the volunteers give 550 of service a week to make our programs possible. We couldn’t serve our guests without our wonderful volunteers! The magic of the Wednesday meal takes many volunteers and two days to prepare the delicious and nutritious 3 course dinner for our weekly 150 guests. Our latest Volunteer Spotlight highlights the dedicated Wednesday morning prep group!
