For over 35 years, Martha’s Table has worked to support stronger children, stronger families, and stronger communities by increasing access to quality education, healthy food, and family supports in the District of Columbia. We believe every child deserves the opportunity for their brightest future, and a deeply engaged family and community committed to their success. Our programs are organized into the following initiatives: Healthy Start, Healthy Eating, Healthy Connections, and Emergency Support Services.
Our high quality, nationally accredited Healthy Start program offers full day early childhood education to children from 3 months to 3 years of age, as well as out-of-school time programming for pre-kindergarten and elementary-aged students. These comprehensive programs lay the framework for school readiness and help students develop skills to ensure academic and life success. Our educators employ an intentional practice, which incorporates the most up to date, best in class research on how children learn and develop.
Martha’s Table believes that access to fresh, healthy food is essential for supporting stronger children, families, and community. Our Healthy Eating initiatives work to ensure healthy food for those in need and support children and their families to make healthy choices.
As our children progress through middle school, high school and college, we support our youth with service, leadership, and work opportunities as they mature into their future as learners, leaders, and earners.
