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. With your help, we will feed 9,000 low-income DC residents with a healthful holiday meal. Just $29 provides Holiday Helpings to a family of four—so your gift makes a difference! Make your Holiday Helpings gift here.

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:
