Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen exists through the generous commitment people have made as individuals and collective congregations, businesses, and corporations who demonstrate their support of the command Peter received from Jesus Christ to, 'feed my sheep.'
The cost of operation each day to feed 160 people (our average) requires $350.
Your donation of $20 helps us feed 9 people; 22 people eat with your $50 donation; and 80 people eat with your half-a-day's support of $175.
