Up to 10,000 Neighbors Supported with Healthy Groceries Every Week

Nearly overnight, we expanded our grocery distribution by 400%—supporting as many as 2,200 neighbors in a single day.

It is a common misunderstanding that the healthy food we distribute is all donated to Martha’s Table.

Your donation helps us purchase food from the local food bank and other sources to ensure no neighbor goes without access to healthy food

We honor the dignity of every neighbor who turns to Martha’s Table and provide fresh fruits, vegetables, and shelf-stable items at no-cost; no questions asked.

Sadly, the unprecedented levels of need have not subsided. Martha’s Table is taking bold action to continue to meet the 400% increase in need. But we need your help.

Many neighbors are turning to Martha’s Table for the first time.

One neighbor, Wanda, turned to us for access to healthy food for the first time this spring. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the childcare center she worked at closed. Like many, she unexpectedly found herself without an income.

Thankfully, she heard from a friend about Martha’s Table and our no-cost food programs.

“It’s a blessing to be here to get this food. And people here are so very nice!”    Wanda, a D.C. neighbor


Helping Keep Our 137 Education Families Strong

Martha’s Table believes every child should have the opportunity to thrive. We provide nationally accredited early education from birth through four years of age and support parents with the resources they need as family leaders.

The economic collapse hit the families enrolled in our education program hard. Devastatingly, by April 2020, 9 in 10 of our families had been financially impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak, and more than half were concerned about their ability to pay rent the next month.

Because neighbors like you have stepped up, we have been able to take bold action to support the 137 families with children in our education program. With the help of our community, Martha’s Table:

  • Provided $9,000 in direct-cash assistant to EACH family, relieving financial pressures that threaten our families.
  • Provides a steady supply of essential resources, including diapers, wipes, formula, and healthy food.
  • Supports the continued development of our children, guiding in-home learning.

“To receive a stipend from your child’s school—it’s huge. I’ve been down and what Martha’s Table is doing has lifted my spirits. I feel that someone cares.”

— Jalisa, Martha’s Table mother

200+ Meals Each Night on McKenna’s Wagon

Rain, snow, sleet, or global pandemic…McKenna’s Wagon rolls out every night of the year. We continue to support 200+ neighbors experiencing hunger or housing insecurity with the help of our tremendous volunteers. Each meal pack includes a warm, fresh meal, nutritious snacks, and a large water.

Our small-but-mighty McKenna’s Wagon team has stepped up to ensure we have our freshly-made meals each night.


“I’m a regular with McKenna’s Wagon. Where would I go to get food if not there? I’m glad Martha’s Table is here.”

— Leon, McKenna’s Wagon Guest
