Notice: Regarding COVID-19
The COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic has significantly increased the number of hungry in our communities. Martha's Kitchen is feeding nearly 1,000 extra meals per day to keep up with the need. A GoFundMe charity page has been created to raise the additional funds needed to provide nutritious meals for those in need. Donations can be made via the button below.
How to Help
Martha's Kitchen is open during the COVID-19 crisis, as we are considered an "essential service" in that we supply food. To help prevent the spread of the virus our meal service is being provided as "to go" service to our clients until further notice, and we've implemented the following procedures to help keep our volunteers, staff, and clients healthy.
