“When you have more than you need, build a longer table – not a higher wall.”
Because we of our commitment to offering vegetarian meals, working with local farmers and utilizing a dedicated team of volunteers, each dollar donated to Open Table MDI extends far in our work to alleviate hunger and cultivate community on Mount Desert Island. Your gifts to Open Table MDI make this uplifting work possible.
Our work of cooking food and sharing it, aims to bring people together who might not normally come together – to break down traditional barriers of separation. We believe that access to healthy food is a right, not a privilege. Every week, each table is set in the spirit of equality, compassion, love, generosity and kindness. At our tables, hungry people are offered food, all voices are heard, joy is cultivated, and isolation is decreased.
