HAPPY NEW YEAR! (2 months late!)

On June 30th, Bread for the City wrapped up another exciting fiscal year.

It’s Holiday Helpings season here at Bread for the City, and there’s excitement in the air!

Beginning November 2nd, we will distribute free holiday meals–a turkey, rice, cranberry sauce, vegetables, stuffing and more!–to our clients through our NW and SE Center food pantries. Why? Because Thanksgiving wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a turkey!

It’s Kind of a Big Deal, Too!

Hey, guess what, everyone???

Bread for the City is pleased to announce that we received a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to provide quality primary care to under-served DC residents.

(Or FQHC –and brace yourself for more acronyms to come, as this is a blog post about the federal government).
