Happy New Year!

I find myself struggling to find the right words to convey how grateful I am for what you make possible each day.

Over the past twelve months you have uplifted Bread for the City. You saw how our clients struggled, how hard our staff and volunteers worked, and you were moved to act. Thank you.

From all of us in the Bread for the City family, I wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

With love and gratitude,

George A. Jones
Chief Executive Officer

A Note to the Bread for the City Community

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.
