I recently had the privilege to serve as a volunteer for Martha’s table.
Martha’s Table began in 1979 with the intent of creating a place for children to receive free food after school. However due to a strong response to the needs of the community, services were eventually expanded to find short and long-term solutions to poverty. Martha’s table addresses emergency needs with food and clothing programs. They also work to assist children and families trying to break the cycle of poverty via education and other supportive services. Today, they reach out to over 18,000 people through programs for food, education and thrift stores with significant support from over 14,000 volunteers every year.
