From PEP to the Diaper Program: Shalonda tells us how she found her place at Bread!

The Diaper Room is open two days a week. Our clients receive a total of 50 diapers per household each month. We also offer our clients other baby needs, including milk, formula, nipples, pacifiers, bottles, baby shampoo, baby wash, baby lotion, baby clothes, cribs, walkers, strollers, even car seats, and so much more. Everything is upon availability, but it’s a great feeling to be able to offer that parent or guardian what they need to take care of a child.

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.

Just when you thought you were out…

…Bread for the City pulls you back in!

Let’s (re)meet our new(ish) Chief Development Officer, Andrea Messina! Eight years ago, she worked at Bread for the City before going on to business school, to different nonprofits, and even to the private sector. But as many of our current and former staff who stay engaged at Bread can attest, we’re harder to shake than the mafia, so this summer Andrea returned to the Family to lead our fundraising efforts.
