Come Celebrate the Fall Season with MT!

Come Celebrate the Fall Season with MT!

Well, of course...fall! Happy fall, everyone from all of us at Martha’s Table!

As autumn winds blow through the District, Martha’s Table is spreading warmth from the classroom to the community with fall festivities.

 “Even with the challenge of celebrating the fall in two new locations, we had a lot of activities for families to share in the fun—as one community.”  Ms. Sequoya, a veteran teacher at the Maycroft

During the annual Harvest Festival, students and their families were invited to pick pumpkins, pose with scarecrows, and run through the hay—as youngins pull their caregiver’s hand, pointing in awe at the baby ducks and chickens. 

“We are always looking for ways to incorporate literacy into our daily lives, especially on Halloween.”

Ms. Sequoya says smiling as she recalls teachers and students at both the Maycroft and The Commons, dressed up as their favorite book character. Everyone laughed as the children went trick or treating throughout the buildings and MT team members handed out candy. 

So, how do we celebrate the fall season in our classrooms and extend that joy to the larger Ward 8 community?

Our Community Harvest Dinner on Saturday, November 23rd, is a neighborhood-based approach to engagement, building meaningful relationships and gathering resources with community leaders and organizations.

 “We’ve committed to listening and learning from our neighbors, inviting them to sit at the table where decisions are made,” states Charles Gussom, our Community Development Manager, at Martha’s Table

With excitement, we would like to share this festive time with you. Invite your friends, family, and neighbors on November 23rd from 10 am-4 pm at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church, located in the Panorama Room (1600 Morris Rd).

While we break bread and enjoy a special Thanksgiving menu, we will also ask that you bring an old pair of shoes for our featured partner, Kicks 4 The City, to support their shoe distribution project throughout the District.


The Community Harvest Dinner will have activities for children of all ages and information on the resources we provide here at Martha’s Table. For example, classroom opportunities for Pre-K are still open. We are currently enrolling for our full-day, year-round Head Start program with in-house fresh meals every day. Stop by to learn more! 

Celebrate the fall season with us. From the #Classroom2Community, join the #MTcommunity for our Harvest Community Dinner, and let’s fill our stomachs with nourishing food, laughter, and joy.
