Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, making donations tax deductible. We are funded through generous donations from caring individuals, churches, organizations, and businesses from our community and the surrounding area. We also have accepted privately funded grants from corporations and private foundations, however no government funds are accepted.
Through food donations, we are able to keep the cost of food purchased to less than $0.59 per meal with over 38,000 meals served in 2014. So you can see how any tax deductible donation can impact the lives of those who depend on us.
That does not include our other operating costs such as gas for the stove and heating, electricity, building maintenance, etc. With that, our cost is $365 a day, so someone making a donation of a dollar a day for a year will be underwriting an entire day of operations.
Any one making a monetary donation will receive a tax receipt in January of the following year.
Donations may be sent to: Our Daily Bread, P.O. Box 488, Lima, OH 45802
