The Secret Is Out: We’ve Got The Best Dads Around!

This past Saturday, Martha’s Table hosted its 6th annual Father’s Day celebration and welcomed hundreds of families to gather and celebrate the strong fathers and father figures in our community. 

Families gathered to enjoy a day filled with activities, entertainment, delicious food, and a focus on men’s health. The event was a testament to the power of community and the importance of celebrating fatherhood. Fathers shared heartfelt tributes about their experience with District Dads, a 17-week program designed to help fathers and father figures find the support and camaraderie they need to thrive.

“The goal of District Dads is to help fathers gain deeper relationships with their children, learn best parenting practices, and engage with their children and their families,” says Matt Miller, who runs the District Dads program at Martha’s Table.

At the heart of Martha’s Table’s mission lies a steadfast commitment to empowering families and nurturing resilient communities. The Father’s Day celebration emphasized the significance of support networks and the value of community partnerships. District Dads is a great example of this, as the program is offered in partnership with Family First DC’s Anacostia Family Success Center, Capital Youth Empowerment Program, and Community Wellness Ventures.

As we reflect on the success of this year’s Father’s Day celebration, we are reminded of the resilience, strength, and love that define fatherhood. As we look to the future, let us continue to uplift and celebrate the fathers in our lives, ensuring that they feel valued, supported, and celebrated not just on Father’s Day but every day of the year. 

We welcome you to celebrate or honor a special father or father figure who has made a difference in your life by making a gift to Martha’s Table and supporting impactful community-led programming like District Dads.
