Joyful Food Markets Martha's Table, Capital Area Food Bank, and DC Health present Joyful Foods Markets: a monthly pop-up

In January, 2015, in partnership with the Capital Area Food Bank, we launched Joyful Food Markets at four elementary schools in Wards 7 & 8, east of the Anacostia River, to reduce hunger and increase access to and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables.

✨ VEGGIE SPOTLIGHT 🥬🥗✨

April’s food bag contains lots of healthy options for snacking or dinner options and COLLARD GREENS 🥬 is one! Take a look at some nutritional ways to eat & prepare it!

What ways do you like to eat collard greens?

04/09/2022

WHATS IN THE BAG?!

Follow along as intern, Georgia shows us how to properly store items from April’s bag!

Blueberries 🫐: In the fridge, middle or bottom shelf

Cabbage 🥬: Best stored whole and unrinsed until you're ready to use it. Place it in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of your fridge.

Carrots 🥕 (bagged): Carrots should be kept loose in the vegetable drawer of your fridge. If your carrots come with the leaves intact, cut these off before storing.

Collards 🌳 (bagged): Put the bag of collard greens in the crisper of your refrigerator. Keep them there until you’re ready to use them.

Kiwi 🥝: The best way to store whole kiwis depends on the level of ripeness—in general, you can store ripe kiwis in the refrigerator and unripe kiwis on a kitchen counter. If storing an unripe kiwi on a countertop, keep it at room temperature and away from direct sunlight.

Oranges 🍊: Oranges are kept best in cold places—to maximize quality, the crisper drawer in your fridge will prove most fruitful.

Potatoes 🥔(bagged): Store uncooked potatoes in a cool, dark place with plenty of air circulation — not in the refrigerator.

Snow Peas (loose): Peas will last 4-5 days in the fridge if placed in a plastic bag.

Shelf stable milk 🥛: With higher temperature pasteurization and special packaging, shelf-stable milk can be stored safely without refrigeration. Always use it by the best-by date and store it in the fridge after opening.

April 2-8, 2022 is National week of the Young Child.

The general purpose of this week is to bring focus on the needs of young children and their families while recognizing early childhood programs and services that can meet those needs!

In celebration of this week the team here at Joyful Food Market knows snacking can be BIG after school and before dinner time so naturally we want to show some healthy snack options & the benefits for our youth!

Which snack is your go to for the kids?
