“Martha’s Table (founded in 1980) is a non-profit organization, an active charity and volunteer center in Washington, D.C. The mission of Martha’s Table is to “transform lives by engaging the community in developing sustainable solutions to poverty,” and to “meet core needs of clients with education, nutrition, clothing, and family support programs that prepare young people, from infancy through adulthood, for a promising future. My name is Akanni Oyegbola, a student volunteer here at Martha’s Table. I learned about Martha’s table after leaving my grad school class one evening. I was in route home to N.W. DC and noticed a van handing out hot meals to the less fortunate on 2nd a H street N.E. Washington D.C. Intrigued by what I saw driving past the mobile soup kitchen known as “McKenna’s Wagon” I immediately went home an googled the name on the side of the van to look for where this organization was located. I was pleased to find out that its office was located not too far from my house in N.W. Washington D.C. From that day on, I have volunteered my time to Martha’s Table.”

Check out the great pics Akanni sent us!
