Community Involvement

As a part of our mission we engage with and support local food banks and community meals. We pledge 3% of our sales towards the goal of feeding all the citizens of our community.

Our team regularly volunteers at Open Table, a community dinner and food pantry  in Maynard and Concord. Kitchen to Table Foods provides the ingredients, and Mark Valentine serves as Chef for a weekly community dinner, open to all who come.

In February of 2018, Chef Mark was joined by State Senator Jamie Eldridge and Representative Kate Hogan, as well as volunteers from Open Table. The team served a delicious meal of Mixed green salad with fresh citrus, Herbed Chicken Breast, Maple Sweet Potatoes, roasted broccoli, and dessert.
