Bread for the City’s statement on the Presidential Inauguration and MLK Day

On Wednesday, everyone witnessed history. It was the first time a woman, and a person of Black and South Asian descent, was sworn in as Vice President of the United State of America. It also took place two days after the 38th anniversary of the establishment of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which we celebrated just this Monday. The inauguration of Joseph Biden and Kamala Harris during King Week is appropriate, a sign of hope that we can continue our work to accomplish all that King, and other freedom fighters, dreamt of.

Bread for the City provides Moderna vaccine to essential workers

We received 400 doses, the bulk of the doses will be for DC area frontline staff and medical providers who will be referred by the DC Health Department. Many people are scared and don’t feel as if they’re ready to take the vaccine, and that’s perfectly reasonable.
