Our Organization

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.
