D.C. Day 1 – Martha’s Table

Today was our first day working with YSOP in Washington, D.C.  We arrived early in the morning for orientation and then got into our assigned groups and parted ways. My group was headed to Martha’s Table. Martha’s Table is an organization that provides a variety of services to the homeless. Their main goals are to provide access to education, food, and opportunity. Our task of the day was to peel and cut potatoes. Although this job seemed unimportant, our supervisor explained to us how their operation runs almost entirely on volunteers like us. What seemed like a small task was actually going to be able to provide a meal to hundreds of people that night. Everyone we worked with was very friendly and also very passionate about Martha’s Table and everything that they do for the homeless.
