BFC called on the mayor to fund a simple improvement to DC’s low-income immigrant health insurance program

Last week, the mayor hosted the Virtual 2021 Budget Engagement Forums, an opportunity for DC residents to tell the mayor’s office what values they want to see reflected in this year’s budget. Bread for the City, as a member of the DC Healthcare Alliance Coalition, called on the mayor to fund a simple but essential improvement to DC’s low-income immigrant health insurance program.

Bread for the City has a record setting Holiday Helpings campaign for 2020!

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.
