Building community one meal at a time. That's the mission of Open Table MDI which will begin their Free Weekly Dinners starting on Tuesday, March 13th from 4PM to 7PM at the Bar Harbor Congregational ChurchFresh off their success of their initial meal on February 6th, Open Table MDI is planning on serving weekly dinners, complete with entertainment. They are looking for volunteers of all sorts, most especially morning kitchen help, evening servers, and musicians for each supper. If you are interested, please check out their volunteer sign-up spreadsheet HERE

Their first weekly dinner consisted of a vegetarian and vegan and gluten free menu (except for the biscuits) and included

  • Southern Skillet Black-Eyed Peas and Cauliflower
  • Homemade Biscuits with Maple Butter
  • Smoky Braised Kale with Crimini Mushrooms
  • There will also be a small amount of salad tossed with golden carrots and Chioggia beets from Beech Hill Farm, dried cranberries, toasted pumpkin seeds, and an orange vinaigrette.

And it was delicious! I hope to see you at the upcoming meals!
