The Chef's Table

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

Leadership Giving

As a member of The Chef’s Table, you provide the vision and resources to help realize our mission. Your membership ensures that we have the means to stock our pantries with the freshest foods available, fire up our ovens, and fuel our delivery vans.

Membership honors supporters who make gifts of $1,200 or more each year, which can be paid in several ways.

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

To learn more, contact Luis Fortes, Major Gifts Officer at  or 617.522.7777.
