Daily Bread’s soup kitchen is a lifeline for over 4,200 men, women and children in our community each year. Serving between 200 and 250 people daily, the kitchen is open seven days a week, 365 days a year, providing a hot midday meal plus hygienic services, including shower, laundry and mail service, to anyone in need.
Daily Bread has served more than 1.6 million meals to the needy since it’s inception in 1988. Each year they conduct a census of those who come to Daily Bread for services. The purpose of the census is to provide demographic information. Last year, homeless people comprised 35% of their clientele and 65% were not homeless.
