B.R.E.A.D., Inc. stands for Blessings Received Each Appointed Day. We are continually blessed by a caring community that volunteers their time and resources to provide extra help, food, love and encouragement to those in need. We have an all volunteer staff and board that loves to be a part of making a difference.
We have thousands of clients that come as needed throughout the year. Some come a few times a year, some once a month, and some come most every week. Clients are eligible to come weekly. We have many clients who walk and are homeless who only take what they can carry or put in their backpack, so a weekly opportunity to get some food is very helpful to them. Many seniors on fixed income also love to come weekly to get fresh vegetables, salad, bread, snacks and drinks. Once a month, clients also receive an additional food box.
New clients must bring proof of income and expenses, as well as ID for you and those in your household.
Dorothy Lowery is the President of the food bank. Helping people that are hungry has been her dream. Her most heart-stirring memory was from a poor area in the Middle East where she saw women and children pulling up grass to eat, they were so desperately hungry. She is 85 years young and still has the love for helping those in need. She says by doing this she is spreading the love of JESUS Christ and that has and still is her main goal. She says, "Hide me behind the cross so that others will see Jesus in me.". Her hearts desire is to serve Jesus with her every breath and every action. She has been volunteering with B.R.E.A.D., Inc. since 1993 and became president in 2005.
The need to help others is growing each year. There are so many people out of work.
We rely solely on the generous contributions of individuals, churches and businesses. Our non-profit organization is strictly 100% volunteer work. Any money donated goes to rent, utilities, gasoline and food to give our clients. No amount is too small to give. All gifts are greatly appreciated and may the Lord richly bless you.
Dorothy Lowery, President
