In spring 2015, Kathleen Stephan, Community Resource and Quality Assurance Coordinator, began looking into why so many Bread for the City clients were suddenly struggling to obtain an ID.

Bread for the City is just making ALL the big changes right now. We’re officially an FQHC; we just launched our new strategic plan; and for the first time ever, we have hired an Advocacy Director!
Our food pantries will close at 3 PM on Thursday, February 29 for our Black History Month Celebration. Join us to celebrate at our Northwest Center, 1525 7th St NW. Accept your flowers with a flower bouquet arrangement workshop, and enjoy a DJ and food from the African diaspora. All are welcome!
