DC Central Kitchen and Martha's Table
Martha’s Table supports stronger children, stronger families and stronger community by making healthful food and quality learning more accessible. For 35 years, Martha’s Table has served as an important community partner, helping neighbors access the skills and resources needed to earn, learn and lead through life. Martha’s Table’s Healthy Eating programs include 22 free pop-up grocery markets across the District of Columbia and McKenna’s Wagon, a 365-days-a-year mobile food delivery program that serves three Washington, D.C. locations nightly. It also operates two Martha’s Outfitters clothing shops in the District and offers premier early-childhood, after-school and out-of-school time education programs to children ages three months to 13 years.

DC Central Kitchen uses food as a tool to change lives. Each day, the Kitchen serves up 10,000 balanced meals packed with fresh, local produce. Half of these meals are delivered to area homeless shelters, after-school programs, and other nonprofit organizations serving low-income DC residents. The other half are prepared in DC public and private schools, making DCCK the only nonprofit in America conducting a full-service healthy school meal program. They also offer an acclaimed Culinary Job Training program that empowers at-risk, unemployed adults to embark on new careers. Many program graduates go on to work in their busy kitchens, supporting DCCK’s direct service programs and social enterprise activities. To learn more, please visit www.dccentralkitchen.org.
