Did you know Bread for the City has a new mission statement? We’ve updated our purpose with new goals and values, while still preserving the same quality services and dignity-based model we’ve always had.
Bread for the City Community,
Tuesday’s election results have stirred up a wide range of emotions for many of us in the Bread for the City family. The past year was filled with hopes and dreams as well as angst and anxiety as our process of electing a new president unfolded. Forty-three years ago, our founders committed to fighting poverty and the conditions that perpetuate it. And for 43 years, we have fought. Many of the promises made in this campaign – including targeting marginalized groups, eliminating the Affordable Care Act, and limiting charitable giving incentives – threaten our ability to serve our community and to do it in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.
Last Thursday, Bread for the City had the honor of hosting Civil Rights icon Congressman John Lewis and author Andrew Aydin at our SE Center for a book signing of March III, the third in a series of graphic novels.
In times of crisis, we all need to come together.
Bread for the City is comprehensively responding to COVID-19 with expanded community partnerships, continual medical care, and responsible and creative programming so that we can meet our community’s needs.
Will you help us with a gift today? Together, we can meet these extraordinary times head-on and ensure that all DC residents remain safe, fed, and supported.DONATE HERE
