March Community Service Project
March 1, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST
Martha’s Table, in partnership with the Capital Area Food Bank, launched Joyful Food Markets to increase access to and encourage consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables east of the Anacostia River. In each school, colorful tables are filled with baskets of fresh produce and healthy non-perishable food, while festive music plays. Families and children can mingle with volunteers and school administrators while selecting from fresh, seasonal produce and healthy pantry staples, totaling 23 pounds of food per enrolled student. The Markets also feature kids’ cooking activities, recipe samples, and chef-led culinary demonstrations, designed to get children excited about healthy eating and cooking.
