Martha’s Table Collection

Follow the guidelines below for preparing your donation, then send it with your kid to school on the designated day. Volunteers will collect donations during school arrival. Please watch for emails about specific donation requests from Martha's Table depending on their current needs.

Trail mix:

Create your own recipe using nuts, whole-grain cereal, dried fruits and pretzels, or use one they provide at this link. Package individual servings (about 1 cup each) in snack size bags.

Fresh fruits and vegetables:

Donations will either be distributed directly to hungry people, or will be used by Martha’s Table for muffin-making and meals. Oranges are especially welcome hand fruits (as they are softer for folks with dental problems). Apples, sweet potatoes, onions, celery and carrots are also used/distributed by Martha’s Table in high volume. Any quantity is welcome, from a single yam to a crate of oranges.

Muffins:

Make or buy muffins of any type. Package them individually in baggies.

Sandwiches:

They accept two types of sandwiches: Meat & Cheese and Peanut Butter & Jelly.   

Process:

Start with a clean work surface and washed hands.

Use healthier types of ingredients, such as whole wheat bread or lean meats, whenever possible. Less is better if the healthier ingredients are more expensive. Please avoid bologna and white bread when possible.

Do NOT apply any condiments to sandwiches (to extend shelf life), but feel free to include a packet in the bag with the sandwich.

Individually wrap the sandwiches in foil, plastic wrap, or sandwich bags. Label each to indicate sandwich contents (ex. TC = Turkey and Cheese; HC = ham and cheese; H = ham, etc.). Once they are individually wrapped, place the sandwiches back in the loaf bag for donation. Label the loaf bag “Peanut Butter & Jelly” or “Meat & Cheese” so they can quickly determine what must be refrigerated.

Non-Perishable Items:

Almost any kind of sealed, unopened, unexpired healthy food is welcomed by Martha’s Table, so feel free to send in any of these items. Easy-open lids are especially appreciated.
