OurMission

We believe that every child deserves the opportunity for their brightest future and a deeply engaged family and community committed to their success. For nearly 40 years, Martha’s Table has worked to support strong children, strong families, and strong communities by increasing access to quality education programs, healthy food, and family supports.

Welcome to Martha’s Table

For nearly 40 years, we have worked to support strong children, strong families, and strong communities in Washington, DC. With our three locations, we stand firmly alongside neighbors on both sides of the Anacostia River by offering high-quality programs and services.

“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.”

Parent and Joyful Food Market patron

“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.”

Family in our Early Headstart Education Program

“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.”

Parent and Joyful Food Market patron

“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.”
