On Tuesday 10/3, as part of Day 2 of Hanover’s Week of Service, the Enterprise B2C team supported Martha’s Table with its “Joyful Food Markets”, which take place at 33 elementary schools in Wards 7 & 8, east of the Anacostia River. These markets are designed to reduce hunger and increase access to and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables. Presented in partnership with the Capital Area Food Bank, the markets are held once a month, immediately following school dismissal. These markets are joyful community events open to families with children enrolled in that school.
Hanover’s team split up into two groups – one at King Elementary School, the other at Achievement Prep, and assisted with curating a vibrant and joyful space for shopping, support demos of healthy, market-inspired recipes, assist children and families with choosing and learning about fruits and vegetables, and more!
