Operations at Martha’s Outfitters have resumed.
We have more than quadrupled the reach of our grocery programs, all at no cost to our neighbors. Each week, we support over 8,000 D.C. residents with fresh produce and healthy pantry staples, distributing more than 100,000 pounds of food at 20 sites across the city.
We continue to deliver essential nutrition to our neighbors who are experiencing hunger or housing instability through McKenna’s Wagon, our no-cost food truck that serves warm meals, sandwiches, and healthy snacks every single evening.
Standing alongside the 137 families enrolled in our education programs, we have doubled-down on our support by providing them with direct cash assistance, groceries store gift cards, and essential supplies like diapers, wipes, and formula during the temporary closure of our education centers.
Stories from our Team, Families, and Neighbors:
Martha’s Table in the Media: Sharing Our Story Across the Nation
July 27, 2022 at 8:50 PM
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.
