Bread for the City has completed construction on a new, 27,650 square foot comprehensive service center at 1700 Good Hope Road, SE, which began January 2019. Here’s a new video that captures all the special moments during the virtual grand opening.
This year, Bread for the City changed its strategy for Holiday Helpings, a 30+ year tradition for an almost 50-year-old organization. Holiday Helpings in 2020 was about standing on the pillars of equity and inclusion by providing the resources for community members to have autonomy for their holiday plans. Instead of turkeys and hams, we gave families and individuals gift cards; maybe a turkey or ham is not truly what they needed or wanted this holiday season, maybe paying a past due bill, buying groceries, buying winter gear, purchasing diapers, or filling up the car with gas is the priority.
Clients of Bread for the City highlight the impact we’ve had on them and in DC. Our organization treats community members with dignity and we help improve all areas of their lives.
Thank you for supporting Holiday Helpings this year and helping us provide gift cards to families and individuals who are struggling during the pandemic. More information will be provided in the coming weeks.

Learn how they get in the spirit each year for Holiday Helpings, and what the program also means for them.
