Market Day!


Last Thursday, the kids in Martha’s Table’s education programs participated in our first-ever Market Day.  This event corresponds with our Meals for Minds school pantry program where we provide non-perishables and fresh produce in four public schools once a month. With a focus on healthy foods and nutrition, Market Day gave our kids the opportunity to “shop” for fresh fruits and vegetables and to try new foods. Each of our kids left the market with a full bag of delicious and nutritious produce, such as strawberries, bananas, green beans and sweet potatoes. Martha’s Table’s Chef also completed a cooking demonstration to show the kids how to prepare some of the foods they were bringing home. Market Day was a success best summarized by a young girl in the children’s Program, “The market is so beautiful with all the fruits and vegetables. I’m going to eat them all when I get home and share them with my family.”
