Martha’s Table believes everyone deserves both dignity and opportunity. More than one-third of D.C. residents still struggle to make ends meet and provide for their families. For 33 years, we have worked to build a better future through healthy food, affordable clothing, and quality education.
Martha’s Table transforms lives by engaging the community in developing sustainable solutions to poverty. We meet core needs of our clients with education, nutrition, clothing, and family support programs that prepare young people, from infancy through adulthood, for a promising future.
Martha’s Table works to create positive outcomes with;
- Tutorial, educational, and recreational programs during the school year and in the summer for approximately 240 children and youth;
- Family support services, including groceries, Martha's Outfitters - a thrift store and clothing distribution center; screenings and referrals; meals to the homeless every day of the year at numerous sites throughout the city as well as meals for senior shut-ins and collaborations with 200 other organizations to coordinate efficiently a variety of services.
- More than 10,000 people a year from schools, businesses, faith based groups and the community volunteer with us and learn about services and the value of helping their neighbors.
