"Your donations go directly towards buying the food we distribute. It is a common misunderstanding that all of our food is donated. Of course, when we buy in bulk through the food bank and other sources, the prices are much better. But at the end of the day, we did not budget for this spike in need. Neighbors like you have made this possible." - Kim R. Ford

Your #GivingTuesday gift will DIRECTLY help us purchase high-quality produce that is so vital to supporting the health of our neighbors.

Our first Fall Festival was a blast! Guests visited our Commons location in Southeast for an afternoon of family fun, including an outdoor fitness class hosted by @wefitdc and our Outfitters open-air pop-up!

Personal shoppers guided families through the event as they stocked up on books, activity kits, and clothing for all ages. Families also enjoyed a puppet show live from our parking lot.

Thank you to our volunteers and MT team members who made this socially distant and safe event a success for our neighbors.

Thank You!
Im a former client of Calvary Womens Shelter and N. Street Village. Just moved into a room for rent, signed a lease and now Im being asked to leave because I locked my bedroom door. Please read my story and watch the video which is the actual conversation when i was asked to leave.
Hello! Are you still ISO Smartrip Cards?
I know that this is a long shot, but when I was donating to Martha's Table a few weeks ago my childhood Harry Potter books somehow got thrown into the mix. I'm not entirely sure how it happened but I am heartbroken, it was the Chamber of Secrets, Goblet of Fire & Order of the Phoenix. If anyone grabbed these copies from the Martha's Table bookshelf on 14 street and still has them, it would be mean the world if they were returned to me. I'd be happy to provide a reward. Thank you!
