Serving Up Stability & Hope
Our Daily Bread is an Over-the-Rhine (Cincinnati, Ohio) ministry of hospitality dedicated to serving the needs of the neighborhood residents and those who frequent the area.
The ministry provides stability and hope for its guests and the neighborhood community. It is a place where guests are invited to share a warm meal, receive social services, and to socialize in a caring, supportive and welcoming environment.
In 2014 we served over 100,000 meals and over 149,588 cups of coffee. Here are some statistics of those we serve:
- 22% have a job
- 7% stay at a shelter and 26% have no living arrangements.
- 39% are on Social Security Income or Social Security Disability
- 88% of guests surveyed listed "meals" as a reason they come to Our Daily Bread.
- 72% live in our neighborhood (45202), but 41% of that group have no arrangements or are in a shelter

Our Daily Bread serves a mid-day meal Monday through Friday from 9:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Guests are welcome to stay and socialize most afternoons.
About 125 volunteers a week are needed for running the kitchen, picking up donations, doing data entry and spending time with the children in Kids Club.
It costs more than $800,000 per year to operate Our Daily Bread and nearly every dollar comes from private support and foundation grants.
