Summer Joyful Food Markets open to the community start today!
Millions of children around the country depend on federal school breakfast and lunch programs to get the fuel they need, including thousands here in Washington, DC. But when the school year ends, too many children are left in the lurch without a reliable source for healthy meals. In DC, only about 50% of the children receiving meals through the National School Lunch Program are reached at the limited number of summer meal sites during these months.
This summer, Martha’s Table is standing with these children and their families by offering healthy groceries–including plenty of fresh produce–at no-cost through our Joyful Food Market Program. Families are encouraged to visit any of our 5 easy-to-access sites, where our markets will be “popping up” every few weeks through June, July, and August. Visit joyfulfoodmarkets.org to learn more!
