Issues: Food

Location: 98 Willow St Lynn MA 01901 USA

Mission: Founded in 1982 and rooted in the Judeo-Christian ethics of love of God and neighbor, My Brother's Table stands ready to feed the hungry and to serve all who come in need regardless of race, color, creed or sex. Meals are provided in an atmosphere of welcome wherein guests are treated with love and dignity. Through the congeniality of table service, staff and volunteers may build a caring relationship with guests. My Brother's Table neither seeks nor receives any United Way or government funds and relies solely on the community for support. We believe that we are better able to serve our guests without funding sources that would require us to ask intrusive eligibility-related questions. We further believe that treating people with respect includes allowing them to determine for themselves whether or not they need help. We are the largest volunteer organization in the City of Lynn, utilizing 2,500 volunteers annually from all walks of life.

My Brothers Table is truly a place that welcomes everyone and feels more like a community kitchen than a "soup kitchen." I've served there but even more often, go to eat with the guests to learn from them and hear their stories and give my family an experience to interact with folks from different walks of life. Only at MBT could that happen so easily around such good food!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Create a culinary institute to train folks with culinary skills and start a micro-business canning foods, etc as well as open up a cafe/coffee shop!
