Rachel’s Table Celebrating 25 Years of Service to Worcester Community
Tuesday, March 17, 2015
On Tuesday, April 14th from 6:00PM to 8:00PM, an event at Congregation Beth Israel in Worcester will celebrate the impact Rachel’s Table has had on the community.
In the past 25 years, Rachel's Table has distributed nearly 12 million pounds of food and milk thanks to donations from restaurants, markets, bakeries, hotels, hospitals, caterers, schools and private citizens. Each year, more than 500,000 pounds of food and milk is distributed at no cost to the donor or recipient.
In 2014, Rachel's Table purchased and delivered roughly 39,000 gallons of milk to 21 organizations due to support from grants, corporate contributions and indvidual donations. That same year, Rachel's Table purchased and donated 19,000 pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables along with 100,000 meals to support the Friendly House Summer Meals Program.
Also in 2014, Rachel's Table provided 1,800 pounds of individually wrapped food to people in desperate need of something to eat.
Rachel’s Table was created in 1989 by a small group of members from the Women’s Division of the Jewish Federation as a way to support hungry men, women, and children in the community.
Rachel’s Table is proud of the difference it makes in the community. For more information about Rachel’s Table, the 25th anniversary celebration, making a donation, or volunteering to help, please check the website at rachelstable.org, or call (508) 799-7699.
