MBT is a great place to volunteer. You get to work in the kitchen making the dinners and then you serve the food in the cafeteria. It's usually very busy at first and then it slows down so you can take the time to talk to the people who eat there. There are a lot of characters! It's really organized and clean and it's a big place but it doesn't feel like a factory. Everyone is very nice and it's rewarding to help out. Try it!

I love My Brother's Table!!! I've been coming since I started at English and we really like it. It's really fun if you come with a group but you can come alone or with another person. There are people from a lot of places you might know some of them. You should go!

The guests and volunteers are what makes My Brother's Table special. What makes My Brother's Table subpar is the disorganization and ineptitude of the Board and the front office staff.

Focus on serving the guests within the context of their needs as it says n the organization's website.

Ways to make it better...

the front office staff and Board of Directors would not compromise the mission.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

the ability to continue the mission considering the direction the Board and upper management have chosen to take.

I volunteer at My Brother's Table once a month as part of our church group and as an individual once a week. MBT is an excellent organization and feeds a lot of people with limited resources.

I have been involved with My Brothers Table since day one and think it does a superb job in serving those in need. Unfortunately because of a severe back problem I can no longer take an active part in the meal program but try my best to help in raising funds.

I volunteer at lunch one day each week and for the main meal on one Saturday a month (18 years now). There can be no experience like it: the volunteers are friendly and dedicated; the guests could not be nicer nor more appreciative of what is made available to them. The meals are nutritious, and other services provided are a great bonus for the guests. It is a service of great necessity in Lynn. I can't imagine my life without being one of its volunteers.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing some of the guests no longer needing its services, but knowing that it is there for anyone needing its services.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make a plan to keep the pantry organized and do a better job of volunteer coordination (not have too many or few volunteers for meal prep).

More feedback...

meeting other friendly and dedicated volunteers, and knowing somehow I'm helping people in need (of whom but for the grace of God I could be one).

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

the pantry were more organized and there was a consistency to donations.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial funding and consistent food donations.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Serving the guests is so filled with satisfaction. I thank God I can be one to serve and not be one in need of a meal.

I have been helping at My Brothers Table for many years. Currently I go one day a week to do whatever is needed. Sometimes there are vegetables to be cut, sandwiches to be made, fruit to be plated and there is always food to be put away in the dry goods pantry. The most rewarding is the service of our guests. They are appreciative and generally gracious. I enjoy bringing young people (high schoolers) periodically to serve. They love the experience.

My Brother's Table is a great place to go if you want to meet some great volunteers and if you want to meet some very nice people. It's ok if you dont know how to cook. Its ok if you are nervous to talk people you dont know. No matter what there is always something you can do to help. Its a safe and fun place to volunteer, and if you are nervous or hesitant about volunteering, this is a great first place to start.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Ihave been a volunteer cook once a month for a number of years. It has been a very rewarding experience, especially when the guests send compliments to the cook. Usually, the guests are appreciative and polite and it is a blessing to me and my fellow volunteers to serve them. The group of volunteers on that day are people the I have happily come to know and to respect their dedication to serve. As donations have fallen, it has become more of a challage to meet the needs of providing a meal for 150-200 guests at the Table. My Brother's Table has and continues to manage to be a provider for the increasing number of needy guests.

I have been involved as a volunteer and donor for years. Many of us from Nynex used to serve there when it was on Union St. It was a wonderful experience. The directors through the years are so dedicated. The guests are made to feel very welcomed. And, at Christmas we used to wrap new sweaters, socks, mittens and scarves and each gusest got four gifts.
