We were born from humble beginnings on 14th Street NW as a safe space for children to access after-school meals. Today, we support strong children, strong families, and strong communities by operating nationally accredited education programs beginning at birth; fighting for food justice and increasing access to healthy meals and fresh produce for over 20,000 residents; and promoting family success through our no-cost community store and engagement programs.
In 2022, we are working harder than ever to support our neighbors in the face of COVID-19 and the many other challenges affecting D.C. families.
With the rapidly changing landscape of our city, we remain dedicated to building seats for everyone at the table, ensuring Washingtonians can thrive in their home city.
We continue to believe that by coming together at the table for an exchange of ideas, nourishment, and solutions, real change will happen.

At Martha’s Table, volunteers are the driving force behind our work. They help us deliver on our mission and stand alongside our neighbors every single day. MT volunteers are made up of people from all walks of life who regularly come together in a commitment to supporting strong children, strong families, and strong communities through Martha’s Table. Earlier this month we sat down with three such volunteers who, at Martha’s Table, are famously known as the Lobby Ladies. Watch the interview to learn who the Lobby Ladies are and why they serve!

During National Nutrition month, Martha’s Table’s healthy food programming was in full gear providing our early learners, partners, and neighbors with fresh groceries, hot meals, and educational presentations. Our Community Nutritionist, Camille Range, led multiple nutrition-focused initiatives ranging from MT’s participation in Hear the DC Crunch to demonstrating nutrient-rich and flavorful recipes for children in our partner schools.
