We Operate under the belief that...

No one should go hungry or without shelter. Addressing basic needs is the first step in helping our clients.

It is not enough to address basic needs. It is also necessary to build personal relationships with clients in order to connect them to community services.

Assessing needs and giving clients education, emotional support, and access to county, medical, and housing assistance will improve the quality of their lives.

Our Programs

1

Lunch

12:30 – 1:30 p.m. Daily

A warm, nutritious lunch is served every day of the year to the hungry and homeless. Our cooks prepare the meal and teams of volunteers assist to serve it. Most food is from the Central PA Food Bank, and during the summer season, we receive fresh produce from a few community gardens. Each day, an average of 100 people eat lunch here.

2

Night Shelter

December 2019–March 2020

The Night Shelter offers 40 warm, safe beds to homeless men who would otherwise be unsheltered during the winter season. When the shelter is full, individuals are transported to Bethesda Mission and Susquehanna Harbor Safe Haven, a program of Christian Churches United. Last winter, over 200 men benefited from this new community resource.

Client Assistance

Each weekday, homeless individuals come to Downtown Daily Bread to meet their basic needs –having access to clean bathrooms and shower facilities, new undergarments and clothing, lockers to store their belongings, and secure mail delivery. In addition to lunch, clients can receive transportation assistance, laundry tokens, and food vouchers.
