Bread for the City’s Holiday Helpings campaign provides low-income DC residents with a turkey and all the trimmings so that they may enjoy a celebratory holiday meal at home with their families.
This year, we plan to provide 9,000 low-income DC families with a healthful holiday meal. Just $29 provides Holiday Helpings to a family of four—so your gift makes a difference!
The most impactful way for you to participate in Holiday Helpings is to bring it to your community. Last year, through corporate and community partners organizing food and cash drives, our Holiday Helpings drives raised over $400,000. This holiday season, we need to do it all over again, and more…will you join us?

Did you know?
You can help without hassle and make a tremendous impact — by donating cash instead of canned goods.
Why cash? There’s lots of reasons:
- Cash donations are immediate. No boxes or bags. Skip the trip to our pantry, just donate online now.
- Cash donations are tax deductible; donations of canned goods are not.
- Bread for the City is committed to the health of our clients, so we stock only nourishing foods in our pantries — and many canned foods just don’t make the cut. Cash donations leave the hard parts up to us.
- Most importantly, we can purchase food at a much lower rate than individuals can get at a grocery store! Consider the impact of your cash donation:
Fundraising drives are fun and they make a huge difference.
