OUR DAILY BREAD of Bradenton was established in 1984 in response to the 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.
We are a community-driven organization supported by the churches, foundations, numerous other community-oriented organizations, and most importantly, individuals like you.
We started with a small storefront on 14th Street West in Bradenton, operating seven days a week including holidays. Recently we moved our facilities to the One Stop Center, 710 18th Avenue West (next to the McKechnie Ball field).
OUR DAILY BREAD is a local program.
The people we are feeding are your neighbors.
The majority are not homeless.
They are families struggling to raise children.
We serve an average of 250 men, women, and children daily, 364 days a year.
We are blessed to receive 14,000 hours annually on average from our cherished volunteers.
Did you know that ALL of our Board members also volunteer in the kitchen, serving meals or working in the Loaves & Fishes food pantry?
