Last Thursday, student-athletes from Georgetown Men's Soccer, Georgetown Women's Rowing and Georgetown Softball got together to support Martha's Table 🍽
Martha's Table is a DC local non-profit aimed at strengthening community engagement, health and wellness resources, and educational resources.
The athletes united together to pack over 1,000 sandwiches to be donated and distributed to the D.C. community that Martha's Table serves.
As the months hit their peak, our student-athletes are still focused on tackling the disparities of in their communities.
This International Volunteer Day, NJI celebrates its employees' dedication to spreading kindness through volunteerism. Across our global offices, staff members are given an additional day off to volunteer at an organization of their choice.
Project Manager Aubrey spends her day packing and distributing food to those in need with Martha's Table. "It's great to connect with neighbors in a meaningful way and step outside my bubble. You never know when you'll fall on hard times, and I value groups like Martha's Table for helping pick us all back up."
On Dec. 7, 4 students from Washington, D.C.’s Project Create will unveil their artwork🎨 on limited-edition reusable charity tote bags, available exclusively at Lidl US’s Skyland D.C. store for $3.99 each. 100% of sales will benefit the Joyful Food Markets, a joint program supported by Martha's Table, Capital Area Food Bank and DC Health. Joyful Food Markets are no-cost pop-up monthly markets that increase access to fresh fruits and veggies for residents in Wards 7 and 8. 👏

The DC Department of Forensic Sciences staff is proud to donate several boxes of food items to Martha's Table to help make someone’s holiday a little brighter!
In 2020, Fairfax County residents Amber and Sterling Marchand started a food drive with a plastic box by their driveway to show their four young children a tangible way to help their neighbors during the pandemic.
Thanks to the generosity of their community, that box was immediately — and repeatedly — filled to the brim with non-perishable foods. The outpouring of support the Marchands witnessed led to the creation of Be The Good Project, a grassroots-fueled 501(c)(3) non-profit with a simple mission: to connect local volunteers with safe and easy ways to help feed our neighbors.
Two and a half years later, Be The Good offers local volunteers three primary opportunities to help achieve this mission: making seasonal non-perishable “Care Packages,” making sandwiches for the homeless in partnership with Martha's Table, and filling the Little Free Food Pantries with unexpired non-perishable food.
To date, more than 1,500 Be The Good volunteers have donated more than 84,000 lbs of food and almost 95,000 sandwiches for our neighbors who are experiencing hunger and homelessness across the region. That includes more than 3,000 individual Care Packages filled with non-perishable food that are distributed through Be The Good’s local partners, including dozens of Fairfax County Public Schools.
Be The Good has also donated more than $44,000 in grocery gift cards through its care package program, and the Marchands say their volunteers are on track to deliver another 1,200 Care Packages and $36,000 in grocery gift cards before the end of 2022.
In 2021, Be The Good started its “Little Free Food Pantry” program in an effort to provide communities with a discrete, low-barrier resource to access emergency non-perishable food, 24/7. The little pantries are stocked weekly by Be The Good volunteers who check the pantries and fill them with unexpired non-perishable foods. Each pantry has a simple message: “take what you need, leave what you can.”
There are currently 25 Be The Good Little Free Food Pantries planted across VA, DC, and MD — including 14 little pantries in Fairfax County. The Marchands shared that Fairfax County Supervisor Rodney Lusk and his staff have been instrumental in assisting the program succeed and expand. Be The Good hopes to plant at least four more Little Free Food Pantries in Fairfax County to continue providing their neighbors with discrete access to emergency non-perishables.
Be The Good is 100% volunteer-run. If volunteers are interested in getting involved to stock a Little Free Food Pantry, make Care Packages for local families, or make sandwiches for the homeless, they can learn more at bethegoodproject.org.
