Even during a pandemic, McKenna’s Wagon has not missed a single night.
Martha’s Table is a nonprofit organization committed to supporting strong children, strong families, and strong communities by increasing access to quality education, health and wellness, and family resources. While we are not a soup kitchen, we aim to increase access to healthy food through our no-cost healthy food markets, monthly Community Markets, network of Joyful Food Markets, and McKenna’s Wagon. For more information, please visit our Health and Wellness Programs page.
While we are not a religiously-based organization, our founders Veronica Maz, a social worker, and Father Horace McKenna, a Jesuit priest, chose the name “Martha’s Table” in honor of an admirable individual in the Bible: Martha! When Jesus and his disciples were on their way to Jerusalem, they stopped in a village, where a woman named Martha and her sister, Mary, opened their home to them. While Mary sat with the apostles and listened to their teachings, Martha was consumed by preparations in the kitchen for her honored guests. Martha represents the values with which we treat all people – hospitality, dignity, and respect.
Martha’s Table offers a wide array of supports for District neighbors. Please visit our programs page for more details.

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.
