2020 Holiday Helpings is about more than just a meal

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.

Create your Classy page for Holiday Helpings today

For over 30 years Holiday Helpings has given families and individuals the food to celebrate with their loved ones. It has always supported low-income residents in our communities who don’t have the resources to provide a holiday meal for their families.

See how our community of donors are making an impact!

This year’s infographic is a reflection of our programmatic expansions in response to the needs of our city. Bread for the City successfully provided the most support with the least amount of barriers from the onset of the pandemic. For us, that meant loosening our requirements on food distribution as it became more important to protect our clients, staff, and greater community than to meet face to face and complete paperwork to receive food. With an incredible increase in the need for our services we vowed not to allow paperwork be the mountain in the way of diapers, food, or COVID testing.
