Our Daily Bread of Bradenton is a community-driven organization devoted to feeding the hungry. We are supported by the churches, individuals like you, support foundations, and numerous other community-oriented organizations
Organized in 1984, Our Daily Bread is a response to our community's need to feed the hungry regardless of race, color, or belief. Since then, with extremely limited resources and space, OUR DAILY BREAD has served over 2,000,000 meals to needy men, women, and children in a storefront on 14th Street West in Bradenton, seven days a week including holidays. Recently we have moved our facilities to the ONE STOP CENTER at 701 17th Avenue West in Bradenton (Next to the McKechnie Ball field).
OUR DAILY BREAD serves an average of 250 men, women, and children daily, 364 days a year.
We also have a grocery store "Loaves and Fishes" where families can shop free once a month for food items and fresh produce. The Store has items not available from other food sources, such as peanut butter & jelly and produce. We served over 20,000 people through this program last year. No one is turned away, but in many instances, relief is only partial. Many need more than food.
Jesus said: “Ask and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you” (Matthew 7:7)
Perhaps you already help Over 350 volunteers prepare and serve meals daily. Others serve as drivers, bookkeepers, and helpers. Volunteers are from community groups, individuals, and over 32 participating churches. Our mission is supported by over 2,000 individuals, churches, civic organizations, trusts, county and businesses. This is a local program. The people we are feeding are your neighbors. The majority are not homeless. They are families struggling to raise children.
The people who feed them are not strangers to you either. They are your brothers and sisters in the Lord.
Jesus said: “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me” (Matthew 7:7)
We ask for your help
Your gift is a small thing for you, but it is a great thing for those who are in need. Dependent on the promise of the Lord that if we ask we will receive, we are requesting your help. The hungry thank you in advance for your generous gift.
