I have had so many memories and moments at Martha’s Table it’s hard to just pick one. However, if have to say my most memorable moment was the first day I came to volunteer. It was a Tuesday and I had just gotten up from the orientation table. I stood in the middle of the prep room feeling a little lost. One of the lead volunteers, Mrs. Marie, approached me smiling and said, “Go ahead and put on your hair net and help package these desserts.” From that point on, I knew I wanted to be a welcoming lead volunteer just like her. Marie showed me the ropes to every task possible. This allowed me, not only to complete things in ample time, it helped me be of more assistance and teach others how I was taught. Thanks a million Mrs. Marie, truly.

At Martha’s Table, volunteers are the driving force behind our work. They help us deliver on our mission and stand alongside our neighbors every single day. MT volunteers are made up of people from all walks of life who regularly come together in a commitment to supporting strong children, strong families, and strong communities through Martha’s Table. Earlier this month we sat down with three such volunteers who, at Martha’s Table, are famously known as the Lobby Ladies. Watch the interview to learn who the Lobby Ladies are and why they serve!

During National Nutrition month, Martha’s Table’s healthy food programming was in full gear providing our early learners, partners, and neighbors with fresh groceries, hot meals, and educational presentations. Our Community Nutritionist, Camille Range, led multiple nutrition-focused initiatives ranging from MT’s participation in Hear the DC Crunch to demonstrating nutrient-rich and flavorful recipes for children in our partner schools.
