The Chef's Table -- Community Servings' leadership giving program -- is essential to our ability to deliver meals to those homebound with critical illness. 

As a member of The Chef's Table, you provide the vision and resources to help realize our mission. Your membership ensures that Community Serving has the means to stock our pantries with the freshest foods available, to fire up our ovens, and to fuel our delivery vans. Your gift allows us to plan ahead and plan wisely. 

Membership honors supporters who make gifts of $1,200 or more each year, which can be paid in several ways. Depending on the level of support, member benefits include special recognition and listing in Community Servings' annual report, invitations to events, tickets to LifeSavor and a private dinner party hosted by a local chef.  

By offering a generous $50,000 match to The Chef's Table donations, The Baupost Group, our corporate partner, would like to challenge you to get involved. For every $1 you give, The Baupost Group will match it, dollar for dollar.

Please consider making a personal -- and powerful -- statement in the fight against hunger and illness here in Massachusetts.

Contact Tim Leahy, Vice President, Development and Communications, at 617-522-7777 x230 or if you have questions about The Chef's Table program. 




The Chef’s Table members give $1,200 or more to our annual fund. Community Servings is grateful to the individuals and families whose generosity and dedication serve as an inspiration to others and whose support is essential to sustaining our mission to feed our critically ill neighbors.
