At Our Daily Bread, we are helping people re-write their stories. Every day we get positive feedback, thanking us for the good food and welcoming atmosphere. In 2011 we served 11,075 meals, in 2012 14,827, 2013 14,534, 2014 (so far) 14,101 . Close to 20% of those meals were given to seniors, 3% to children.
Many parents who come to Our Daily Bread receive help with their childcare during the meal because of the real sense of community. Any parent will tell you the value of being able to give their children at least one nutritious meal during the day. On the surface we are a soup kitchen, but below the surface we are a holistic center for social change. With each meal we are helping to make each person’s life more bearable; creating a stronger community in Nelson.
To be a part of this effort to break the cycle of poverty, please call (250) 352-1722, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by between 11:00am and 1:00pm at 520 Falls Street 1/2 block off of Baker Street, Nelson, BC. The staff, volunteers, and guests, would be happy to meet with you. Donations of food, finances and time are always appreciated and greatly needed. Our office is open between 8:00am to 4:00pm or you can donate directly online.
