Some Good Deeds Go Unfunded!

At Bread for the City, in light of the fact that 99% of the clients we see in our food, clothing, medical and legal programs are African American, or people of color, we not only began to discuss the role that race plays in this fact, but we’ve sought to reverse this painful reality.

For the past several years, BFC’s staff, Board and clients have zealously taken on that complex issue of systemic racism.

City Orchard Reports

This spring (March and April) at City Orchard, we have focused on spring cleaning and preparations for a fruitful summer. In addition to harvesting the greens University of the District of Columbia (UDC) generously offer us from their hydroponics greenhouses, we weeded, mulched, trellised and pruned our fruit trees and berries to prepare for the summer ahead.

We need YOU…to support our housing initiatives!

There is a crisis in our city–the displacement of thousands of long-time residents due to the destruction of affordable housing. To support those impacted by this crisis, Bread for the City created an ambitious housing advocacy campaign, aimed at engaging the communities in which we work to build a powerful base of voters, organizers, artists, and others to fight to create and preserve affordable housing in the District.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Bread for the City will be closed on Friday, September 22. We apologize for the inconvenience.
