With main headquarters in the U Street neighborhood, Martha’s Table has been a critical part of the safety net for vulnerable children and families across the District of Columbia for nearly 35 years. Martha’s Table believes everyone deserves both dignity and opportunity. Through healthy food, affordable clothing and quality education, Martha’s Table works with children and their families to build a better future, strengthen communities and break the cycle of poverty.
Last year, Martha’s Table directly impacted 18,000 children and families, including nearly 3,000 children served through their school-based healthy grocery markets at elementary schools, and provided over 600,000 healthy meals.
