We believe every Washingtonian deserves the opportunity to thrive. We support strong children, strong families, and strong communities by increasing access to quality education, health and wellness, and family resources.
“Martha’s Table is committed to treating Washingtonians with dignity and respect in everything we do.”
“The teachers at Martha’s Table go above and beyond. They’ve helped me transition Zayli to her own bed, helped get her potty trained, and even helped me work out academic and professional goals for myself.”
“What’s great about Martha’s Table is that for over 40 years we’ve been constantly evolving”
“I am surprised at the impact that the Joyful Food Market has had on my family…the entire family tries to incorporate new fruits and vegetables into our diets now.”
“The no-cost lobby market keeps my pantry stacked and my wallet full. So, I stop by once a month. I feel welcomed every time.”
“I am grateful to be a part of Martha’s Table. As a teacher, we leave our egos at the door and are fully present. We teach the whole child and sing and play as a way of learning. They do not just sit to be tested. They prepare socially and emotionally as well as academically for Kindergarten.”
“Too often, families in need are forced to navigate a confusing network of service providers to access resources. Martha’s Table has committed to scaling up our cash assistance programs over the next five years. “
“The Joyful Food Market brings so much to our community. My girls love the foods that the chef prepares and I love that…I take the recipes home and introduce these things to the rest of my family.”

At Martha’s Table, volunteers are the driving force behind our work. They help us deliver on our mission and stand alongside our neighbors every single day. MT volunteers are made up of people from all walks of life who regularly come together in a commitment to supporting strong children, strong families, and strong communities through Martha’s Table. Earlier this month we sat down with three such volunteers who, at Martha’s Table, are famously known as the Lobby Ladies. Watch the interview to learn who the Lobby Ladies are and why they serve!

During National Nutrition month, Martha’s Table’s healthy food programming was in full gear providing our early learners, partners, and neighbors with fresh groceries, hot meals, and educational presentations. Our Community Nutritionist, Camille Range, led multiple nutrition-focused initiatives ranging from MT’s participation in Hear the DC Crunch to demonstrating nutrient-rich and flavorful recipes for children in our partner schools.
