Bread for the City (BFC) is excited to announce its annual Holiday Helpings program, a nearly thirty-year tradition that supports area DC families in need through the holidays. Last year, the program transitioned from its tradition of giving out turkeys and other staple holiday food items to embrace a necessary direction to better support over 16,000 DC households by providing critical monetary resources. In alignment with last year’s progression, BFC will work this year to increase its support in communities hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bread for the City, like many community-based organizations across the country, abruptly closed our doors to fight the spread of COVID-19 on March 9, 2020, as life seemingly changed overnight. The difference between the experiences of the communities we serve versus those who were financially secure came into stark contrast almost immediately. Closing Bread for the City, which houses Washington, D.C.’s largest food pantry, could have dire consequences for those who depend on us for not only their groceries but their healthcare and other services in the midst of a global pandemic.

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.
