Martha's Table

Martha's Table 4th Sunday Sandwich Making

IMPORTANT UPDATE (June 3, 2022): The CDC has issued a recall of Jif peanut butter and peanut butter products. Out of an abundance of caution, Martha's Table will not accept any peanut butter sandwiches until further notice. 

-------------

(If you would like to receive a monthly reminder email before the sandwich collection, sign up for all dates you may be available. You can delete your name after receiving the reminder if you are not available.)

*****

NOTE: Please save your boxes from Amazon, Costco, etc. as Martha's Table would like sandwiches boxed for easier storage, distribution, and to protect the sandwiches from getting squished. We usually have a few extra boxes but it take a significant amount of time if we have to repackage many sandwiches each month (we usually have between 600-800 sandwiches). Please follow the guidelines from Martha's Table and sort, label, and package sandwiches as shown in the photo. Thank you!

*****

Sign up below to bring sandwiches and you will get a reminder close to the date (you can always sign up and then remove yourself if your plans change). Just sign up as "1" and bring as many sandiwches as you make, though email a head's up to let us know if you want to do a really large amount, maybe more than 10 loaves. Most families do about 2-4 loaves but any amount is fine!

Ongoing service project for St. Mary of Sorrows and the Notre Dame Club of Washington, DC:

1) Make Sandwiches at home. They will be delivered to Martha's Table in Washington, DC, for distribution to the homeless. (NOTE: Please SAVE YOUR BOXES from Amazon, Costco, etc. to pack the sandwiches, as requested by Martha's Table. We usually have a few extra boxes, but it takes a lot of time for us to box up ALL the sandwiches we collect each month.)

2) Bring them to Michelle & Jeff Gilles's house to drop off on the porch (ideally between 1-3 PM as we do not have fridge space for all the sandwiches, but if that doesn't work for you, come when you can, just get in touch. If during warm weather, please knock or text 703-727-3403 so we can pull the sandwiches inside. 3:00 is the latest possible drop off).  

DIRECTIONS ABOUT MAKING AND PACKING UP SANDWICHES FROM MARTHA'S TABLE: you can make meat & cheese, or just cheese (no condiments on any sandwiches).

Please wear gloves while making sandwiches, and do not make them if you are sick. 

For meat and cheese sandwiches, please do not apply condiments and keep sandwiches refrigerated until drop-off

  • Please individually wrap each sandwich in sandwich bags and label them T/C for turkey and cheese, or H/C for ham and cheese. Just cheese is OK too (C).
  • Pack all of your individually-wrapped sandwiches in an easy-to-carry box and label the box with the sandwich type and the date they were made, and the # of sandwiches (see photo for example). Boxes prevent the sandwiches from getting flattened easily and make for easier distribution and storage.

Note: 1 lb. or more of lunchmeat and 10 slices of cheese are usually good for 1 loaf of bread.

Bring your boxed sandwiches to the Michelle and Jeff Gilles's house: 4952 Gainsborough Dr, Fairfax, VA 22032. Cell is 703-727-3403 (check the signup below - on rare dates we are not available there may be a different location).

If you are in high school or an adult interested in helping distribute hot meals and sandwiches with Martha's Table in Washington, DC, as part of the St. Mary's group, contact Bill Seiler by email ([email protected]) or at 703-978-0242.

SERVICE HOURS: This is a great service project to do as a family or older kids can do on their own. We are happy to verify service hours (we are normally present to sign hard copies, or email the x2VOL verification form, or your name and date/hours of service, to Michelle Gilles, [email protected]). The usual number of service hours are about 1 hour sandwich making, 1/2 hour grocery shopping, and you can include the time driving to/from the drop off site. So 1-2.5 hours, but you can use your actual time if you have kept track or your best guess. 

Thank you for helping those in need.
