Volunteering with Martha`s Table

Since it´s #GivingTuesday today I´ll make a post about one of the organizations I am volunteering for here in Washington DC. Maybe you would like to get engaged? Martha’s Table is a non-profit organization, an active charity and volunteer center. The mission of Martha’s Table is to “build a better future through healthy food, affordable clothing, and quality education. As a volunteer you support them with helping out in their different programs Healthy Start, Healthy Eating and Healthy Connections. The tasks you are given can be anything from prepping meals, to going out on the road with McKenna´s Wagon serving food to the local community.

Up until now I have worked at their location in 14th street, serving food to the homeless and cleaning. It´s kind of a win win situation because you are putting time in to making a difference for others, and at the same time you connect with other interesting people. As a nutritionist and holistic health coach student, I am especially interested in their work on raising awareness around the importance of healthy eating. Education is everything!

Volunteering with Marthas Table creates a bridge for people to connect with their community, and what can be better than doing that and going home after knowing you actually made a difference that day?!

Martha´s table is of course only one of the many amazing organizations one can engage in and volunteer for here in this city and other communities, so what are you waiting for?!
