The mission of My Brother's Table is to nourish our community every day through hospitality, free meals, and unconditional love. Founded in 1982 MBT, the largest soup kitchen on the North Shore, has provided over
hot, free meals and outreach to men, women and children in need. The Table has served over 1 million meals since the pandemic began. The quantity of food served has been equally matched by the amount of love and care we have for our community. Thank you for helping us help.
Our Home, For Sale
The Table has occupied much of the first floor of the Lynn Multi-Service Center (MSC) since 1992. The MSC, owned by the City of Lynn, was designed to house a variety of social service agencies in order to facilitate coordination and increase the ease of use. Late last year, the City Council voted to put the Multi-Service Center up for sale. The Table, in partnership with our development ally, Harborlight Community Partners, submitted our bid to purchase the MSC building!
We love our current home and have exciting visions for how we can improve our space to modernize it and make it more energy efficient. This is a very exciting once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the Table. We have always rented and have never had the security and potential that owning our own space provides. We hope that all of you are as thrilled as we are by the prospect of the Table having a permanent home.
If you, your business, or someone you know are interested in supporting the purchase of the Table’s home, please email dianne or call our office at 781-595-3224.
My Brother’s Table is privately funded. We do not receive nor seek federal, state, or local aid. We do this in order to insure the privacy of our guests and to serve the greatest number of people in need. Funding comes from individual donations and events and private grants. The Table also relies heavily on donated food from supermarkets, restaurants, food drives, and individuals for most of each meal served. Visit our Financials page for more information.
