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.

The Quilt Corner is a collective of people with interest in learning how to quilt and expand the impact of quilting within the community at large through a deeper understanding of the Quilt Codes of the Underground Railroad. With multiple cohorts throughout the year, members meet every Thursday to learn about the patterns & techniques, history, and impact of quilting as the group creates a community quilt together. The Quilt Corner is led by Charlene Hursey and self-taught quilter Dr. Blanche Brownley, who started her quilting journey by watching how-to videos on Facebook and reading quilting books.
