An all Volunteer Non-profit Organization Offering Assistance to Our Community.
Welcome to the Daily Bread Website. We think you'll identify with us because we are people like you--almost every faith represented here, the churched and the unchurched, volunteers from every walk of life, all ages, all sizes, retired teachers, social workers, farmers, doctors, lawyers, merchants, college and high school students. Some professional people use their lunch hour once a week to help us clean up. In our 30 year history, one day, volunteers from the Temple were working with Christians, a Muslim and Hindus. No salaries. No government funding, all drawn together by a commitment to feed the hungry, to preserve the fabric of this community we share. Many of us feel it is the most meaningful work we will ever do.
"In America, people will let you get awful hungry, but they never quite let you starve."
During June, the Common Ground Food Coop at Lincoln Square in Urbana, will have their "Round-up for Good" proceeds go to the Daily Bread Soup Kitchen. Each month, a different local nonprofit is chosen and in June, we are it! Please shop at the Food Coop this month (you don't have to be a member) and Round Up your order for good!
Join us Friday, June 14, from 6-10 p.m. at Alto Vineyards for food, music and dancing to Candy Foster and Shades of Blue. Tickets are $25 each and a "soup kitchen meal" of soup, salad, sandwich, dessert and beverage will be served. There will be a cash bar. For tickets, please call Stevie at 352-5065 or send an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets are also available at the door.
