Martha’s Table

Last Sunday of Every Month, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

For many years, the FCBA has been meeting monthly to volunteer at Martha’s Table, the FCBA Foundation’s partner charity. The FCBA prepares and distributes food at Martha’s Table, which feeds hundreds of homeless adults and children on the streets of Washington daily, through its mobile soup kitchen. Martha’s Table is located in a yellow building at 2114 Fourteenth Street, NW, in the District, near the intersection of 14th and U Streets. On-street parking is available. Volunteers are asked to bring food if possible, (e.g., cold cuts, bread, peanut butter, jelly, vegetables and potatoes) because the center often runs out of donated food.

Please mark your calendars, bring your friends and children (they must be at least nine years old), and participate in this great volunteer effort.

If you are able to volunteer, please RSVP at

Volunteer Cancellation Policy

Our ability to serve the community is based on the hard work of our volunteers and many supporters.

  •  If you schedule and DO NOT show up for your shift, we CAN NOT serve the community to the best of our ability.
  • 24 hour canceling or rescheduling notice is required.  In the event that you are unable to come in for your volunteer shift please contact the Volunteer Program Assistant so that Martha’s Table can make other arrangements.
  • Because we depend so heavily on volunteers, we need to make sure we recruit RELIABLE volunteers.  If you do not provide us with 24 hours’ notice, we will have to reconsider whether we can reschedule for a future volunteer date(s).

For questions or concerns, please contact Howard Weiss at
