Due to COVID-19 Our Daily Bread has experienced an increased demand for meals and decreased on-site volunteer support. Below is the list of our most pressing food needs that will help alleviate the pressure on our staff and allow us to continue to stay open during this time. Sign up to help out below.
PROVIDING FOOD DONATIONS DURING COVID-19
Monday-Friday 8AM – NOON
Keep in mind that if you are bringing food to be eaten that day, the earlier you come the better! Our food service starts at 8:30 am and ends at 11:45 am.
No parking necessary! We are located at 1730 Race Street across from Findlay Market. When delivering food items, please come to our donation door in the back alley behind our building. If you are heading south on Race, go past our building to the first drive on the left (parking lot). Make the next left onto the alley, and pull up to the green door on our yellow building and ring the doorbell. Someone will help you unload, and you can be on your way.
NEEDED ITEM DETAILS
Sandwiches are provided with every hot meal so that our guests can have something to eat later in the day. Any sandwiches provided will help alleviate the pressure on our staff and limited number of volunteers during this time.
We are in need of 600 sandwiches each day, 400 Meat and 200 PB&J. Each sign up slot is for 100 sandwiches.

We hand out weekend bags every Friday to help our guests get through the weekend. Pre-packing grocery bags will help alleviate the pressure on our staff and limited number of volunteers.

We try to provide fresh fruit with each meal we provide but we often run out before every guest receives a meal.
Fruit requested (No apples or pears please, many of our guests struggle with eating these):
Protein-rich non-perishable foods are included in our Weekend Bags. These are important to making sure our guests do not go hungry when we are not open.
