“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
