Daily Table, located in Dorchester, Mass., is a not-for-profit retail store offering fresh, healthy "grab-n-go" meals and other grocery items at a bargain price. These bargain deals are available because Daily Table works closely with a large network of growers, supermarkets, manufacturers, and other suppliers who donate their excess healthy food and provide special buying opportunities.
