Since 1992, Rachel's Table has been working to alleviate hunger and reduce food waste in Western Massachusetts.
Six days a week, more than 200 volunteers collect food from local supermarkets, restaurants, caterers and bakeries, and deliver it to more than 40 agencies, including soup kitchens, food pantries, and shelters.
Our agencies, which are located in Springfield, Longmeadow, West Springfield, Feeding Hills, Chicopee, Holyoke, and Indian Orchard, depend upon Rachel's Table as an ongoing source of nutritious and tasty food.
Rachel's Table is also a catalyst for community activism. Our volunteers come from varied backgrounds, religions and cultures, and range in age from teenagers to people in their nineties.

OUTRUN HUNGER '18
More than 200 participated on a beautiful sunny day as we ran and walked to Outrun Hunger! Our Teen Board raised $40,000 to alleviate local childhood hunger! See highlights of the event at: Outrun Hunger
More than $12,000 worth of food was purchased in just 2 hours at our 11th annual Foodraiser, Nov. 5th, 2017 at the Longmeadow Big Y. Shoppers compete to win prizes for the most money saved as they bought food to donate to Open Pantry and Providence Ministries. A fun day for all as we help our hungry neighbors!
