We cannot thank you enough for standing with Martha’s Table during the COVID-19 crisis. We’ve more than quadrupled our healthy grocery distribution with your partnership and continued to serve our neighbors every night on McKenna’s Wagon.
Temporarily and effective Sunday, April 12, we will consolidate our back-end operations at The Commons in Southeast, D.C. This change is being implemented because the space at The Commons allows for stronger social distancing measures.
During this time period, most volunteer shifts will be based at The Commons in Southeast D.C. (2375 Elvans Rd. SE Washington, DC 20020)
All of our shifts are available on our VolunteerHub calendar.
We sincerely appreciate your flexibility as we navigate this crisis. Questions or concerns? Click here to visit our FAQ page.
At Martha’s Table, the health and wellbeing of our volunteers, staff, and neighbors are our highest priority. Volunteers are required to wear a mask or face covering during their volunteer shift.

We have more than quadrupled the reach of our grocery programs, all at no cost to our neighbors. Each week, we support over 8,000 D.C. residents with fresh produce and healthy pantry staples, distributing more than 100,000 pounds of food at 20 sites across the city.
We continue to deliver essential nutrition to our neighbors who are experiencing hunger or housing instability through McKenna’s Wagon, our no-cost food truck that serves warm meals, sandwiches, and healthy snacks every single evening.
Standing alongside the 137 families enrolled in our education programs, we have doubled-down on our support by providing them with direct cash assistance, groceries store gift cards, and essential supplies like diapers, wipes, and formula during the temporary closure of our education centers.

When we started planning Martha’s Table’s milestone 40th Anniversary, of course we had no idea what 2020 would have in store. Through everything that’s happened this year, we’ve been fortunate to receive generous support from the business community, both locally and nationally.

This October, in collaboration with the Anacostia community and Families First DC, Martha’s Table will expand its community-driven services to better support children, families, and individuals.
