My Brother's Table

Tower School has a long-standing commitment (28 years!) to cooking and serving meals at My Brother's Table, in Lynn MA. Families volunteer to cook and serve meals on the first Wednesday of every month. Our fourth grade families lead the effort, but TSPA Co-chairs Tess Bauta, Valerie Cohen, along with Tower's Fred Shepard, encourage participation from all families.


Summer Instructions: Contact TSPA Coordinators to Make Delivery Arrangements (Delivery or Home Pick Up)

Volunteers are asked to contact Tess Bauta or Valerie Cohen directly. Drop off meals at our house on Tuesday or Tower school lobby Wednesday morning before 8:30 am (or request a pick up from volunteer homes). We will have large MBT pans available for volunteers, disposable/recyclable large foil pans are a great alternative. 

MBT is also appreciative of juice boxes and homemade, individually wrapped desserts.

If you would like to volunteer to organize and distribute meals at MBT, contact Meredith from MBT directly at


Academic Year Instructions: Deliver Meals to Tower

To transport meals from home to Tower, please use a recyclable foil pan or pick up one of the large pans provided by My Brother's Table. Pans will be located outside of the front office on the Friday morning before our scheduled dates. Meals should be delivered to Tower School at 8:00 on Wednesday morning, and labeled with your name and "MBT." Our TSPA Co-Chairs, Valerie Cohen and Tess Bauta, will deliver the meals to My Brother's Table.
