Volunteer with Martha's Table

Martha's Table Logo

Beginning with humble roots in 1980, Martha’s Table was originally a place for children to receive free sandwiches and food after school.  We gradually grew to address the additional needs of the community by finding solutions to poverty in the short and long term.  We address emergency needs with food and clothing programs and break the long cycle of poverty with education and family support services.

As availability in our schedule allows, Martha's Table is able to accommodate those completing school or court mandated community service. Prior to your arrival, you must schedule an appointment with the Volunteer Program Assistant to receive approval to volunteer at Martha's Table, complete our Community Service Orientation, and discuss necessary paperwork and tracking of hours.

Contact our Volunteer Assistant at 202.328.6608 x 212 or volunteer@marthastable.org to schedule a COURT or SCHOOL Community Service appointment and Orientation.
