Bread for the City is disappointed and outraged by the domestic terror attack against our democratic process. Watching political extremists attack the United States Capitol and having disregarding democracy is another example of white supremacy manifesting itself.

Bread for the City is excited to be added to the vaccine distribution efforts here in the Nation’s Capital. We are expecting 400 doses for DC area frontline staff and medical providers. We are hoping to give out the vaccines before the end of January. As soon as we have given out the first 400 doses we are excited to receive the next shipment to get the vaccines out to our community. I received the opportunity to speak with Dr. Randi Abramson, Chief Medical Officer, about Bread for the City’s plan to distribute the Moderna vaccine.

The Moderna, NIAID vaccine is a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) for use in the US for a limited population. We are expecting to receive 400 doses, 10 percent of which will be for Bread for the City’s frontline staff and medical providers. The bulk of the doses will be for DC area frontline staff and medical providers who will be referred by the DC Health Department.

Last year, Bread for the City believed no family or individual should spend the holiday season without celebrating with their families and friends, due to their inability to pay. This year, we still have that same belief, but celebrating with family and friends may not be a priority to everyone. Holiday Helpings this year is about turning tradition into progress, we’re providing the necessary tools for people to make their own decisions. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many people may not celebrate the holidays with a feast, but we still must provide support to our neighbors during these times.
