For over 35 years, Martha’s Table has worked to support stronger children, stronger families, and stronger communities by increasing access to quality education programs, healthy food, and family supports. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity for their brightest future, and a deeply engaged family and community committed to their success.

Celebrating 35 Years of Martha’s Table

Martha’s Table began in 1979 as a result of the partnership between Dr. Veronica Maz and Father Horace McKenna, who wanted to create a safe place for children to eat and read after school. In response to the needs of the community, we gradually expanded our services.  We now address emergency needs with food and clothing programs, and work to ensure a bright future for children and families through education and family support services.

Today, we reach thousands of people through our food, education, and thrift store programs with significant support from more than 18,000 volunteers every year.
