We’ve expanded our Food Program!

In December, we asked you to donate to our food program so that we could expand distribution. Well, you heeded our call, made a gift, and we expanded as promised.
We are proud to report that as of January 19th, Bread for the City’s food program now distributes a five-day supply of groceries to households experiencing hunger rather than the three-day supply that we have traditionally provided. This is an AMAZING program shift that was only possible because of the kindness of our community–that’s you!

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your compassion and for your generosity. You are helping to make DC a better place for all of us.

Chairman’s Corner – Food Insecurity

Welcome to “Chairman’s Corner”, where our Board Chair, Paul Taskier, will write about a variety of topics that impact Bread for the City and indeed the community and nation at large. We invite you to Read, Enjoy and Share!

How many times have you gone hungry for more than half a day? Unless you are living in poverty, it’s not very likely.

Most people with adequate incomes have more choices for food than there are meals in the day. We are surrounded by a myriad of options–everything from restaurants to food trucks to fast food and more. Indeed, there is an obesity epidemic from overeating. But there is also unseen hunger.

Holiday Helpings
