Other Donations

Distributing food is our primary function, but Rachel’s Table helps the community in other ways as well.

You can make a monetary donation in honor of a loved one, bring in unused toiletries, or give us your extra Big Y gold coins and turkey coins. Every donation makes someone’s life a little bit easier.

Donating Food

Maybe you've ordered too much food for your catered event, or your child is organizing a food drive as a community service project, or you simply want to help your hungry neighbors by purchasing a few extra cans of food at the supermarket.

Give Rachel's Table a call! We will make sure that your food gets to the people who need it most.

Our Programs

Over the years, many generous people have created special projects to help feed the hungry. Find out specific ways you can help, or start a program of your own!

The Gleaning Project: Helping Harvest

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, Rachel’s Table brings young volunteers into the fields where they can harvest surplus produce from local farms and bring it directly to our agencies.

In addition to feeding the hungry, the Gleaning Project educates the community about hunger, food security, and agriculture.

Big Y Foodraiser

Are you a savvy shopper? Put your skills to the test at our annual Big Y Foodraiser! Prizes are awarded to the most efficient shoppers, and of course all the purchased food goes straight to our agencies.

Bountiful Bowls

Every two years, Rachel’s Table hosts a gala event to raise the funds we need to help as many people as we can. Our next Bountiful Bowls will take place in the spring of 2015. Be sure to join us for an elegant, fun, and vitally important evening.


Rachel’s Table distributes food to more than forty food pantries, shelters, and soup kitchens in Western Massachusetts. Learn more about our partner agencies and the wonderful work they do.

Food Donors

Our success depends upon the many restaurants, cafes, and supermarkets that donate their extra food. Find out who our donors are, and be sure to thank them next time you patronize them!

Every year, Rachel’s Table donates more than 300,000 pounds of food to 43 agencies. In the past year, Rachel’s Table has seen an increase of 20%-40% in the number of people it serves. In the greater Springfield area alone, nearly 50% of school-age children are “food insecure”- they aren’t sure where their next meal is coming from. Thanks to the generous support of the community, and the success of our last Bountiful Bowls in 2013, Rachel’s Table can meet these challenges head-on, and continue donating more than 300,000 pounds of food a year.
