Here’s To New Friends of Martha’s Table, Cheers!

05.12.2009

Last night, new friends of Martha’s Table let loose and participated in a silent volunteer mock auction (m-auction) while supporting a great cause. Ulah Bristro’s great drink prices kept everyone happy as they perused the various volunteer opportunities Martha’s Table had to offer. Guests signed up to volunteer on McKenna’s Wagon, host a party with a purpose, work with Martha’s Table staff to create a strategic communications plan, and much more! We were ecstatic with the enthusiastic response, and are looking forward to building these relationships.

e were lucky enough to have Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA) speak to issues of Hunger and Homelessness and the ways in which this administration and Martha’s Table are trying to alleviate hunger. Congressman McGovern is Co-Chair of the Congressional Hunger Caucus and a longstanding leader in the fight to end hunger. Last May, Congressman McGovern organized a “Food Stamp Challenge” where he and other Members of Congress lived for one week on a food stamp budget, or about $3/day.

Martha’s Table is very grateful to all those who supported us and celebration of volunteerism last night.

Cheers!
