Sandwiches

No Washingtonian should go without a meal. Can you help make sandwiches for the neighbors visiting our nightly McKenna’s Wagon meal?

Our McKenna’s Wagon program goes our 365 a year. With the help of our volunteers, we prepare a fresh meal to support 200+ neighbors experiencing hunger or housing insecurity.

Sadly, many guests of McKenna’s Wagon do not know where their next meal will come from. Follow the simple steps below to make sandwiches for neighbors visiting McKenna’s Wagon.


“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

Step 3: Spread the Love

  • Please wear gloves while preparing your sandwiches!
  • Pro tip: mix the PB&J in one bowl for quicker sandwich making
  • For meat and cheese sandwiches, please do not apply condiments and keep sandwiches refrigerated until drop-off
  • Please individually wrap each sandwich in foil or sandwich bags and label them ‘PB&J’, ‘T/C’ for turkey and cheese, or ‘H/C’ for ham and cheese.
  • Pack all of your individually-wrapped sandwiches in an easy-to-carry box and label the box with the sandwich type and the date they were made.

Step 4: Drop Off at Martha’s Table

Deliver sandwiches to either our Northwest or Southeast location at your scheduled time! Drop-off times available between 11AM and 4PM. Don’t forget to wear your mask and keep your distance while on-site.
