Martha’s Table relies heavily on donated sandwiches, canned goods and fresh produce to serve our clients meals 365 days a year.  While food donations come from various individuals and groups in the community, our sandwich donation mainly come from particiapting DC, MD and VA schools.  Now that school is out for the summer we will see a 75% decrease in donated peanut butter and jelly and meat and cheese sandwiches until late August.

We URGENTLY need sandwich donations.  Any amount of sandwiches will help, here are a few tips on how to contribute:

  • At Work: organize a lunch break sandwich making session in your board room.  It only takes an hour for a few people to make a couple of hundred sandwiches.
  • With your Friends: organize a sandwich making party on the weekend!
  • With your Family: now that your kids are out of school, teach them how to give back to there community by making sandwiches for those less fortunate.

You do not have to come to Martha’s Table to volunteer, you can make sandwiches in your own kitchen!  You can find the guidelines on our website here.  if you have any questions, feel free to contact the food program manager, Justin Peregoy at or 202-328-6608 x 214
