A Mediterranean Affair Benefiting TABLE

Mediterranean Deli hosts the third-annual TABLE Benefit Dinner.


Dinner-goers from across the community gathered at Mediterranean Deli for a night of dining and dancing in support of TABLE’s mission of providing healthy, emergency food aid every week to hungry children – an issue that TABLE Community Outreach Coordinator Suzi Palladino says affects 30 percent of local grade school children and “is often overlooked.” The evening featured a silent auction with hand-picked items from local businesses, including a sterling necklace from Wentworth & Sloan and an Elaine O’Neil original painting. All of the proceeds went directly to helping supply food to schools and delivering meals to the homes of children who need it most.
