About Our Services
Bread for the City offers five program services to low-income residents of Washington, DC: food and clothing distribution, primary medical care, legal advice and representation, and comprehensive social services. All services are free of cost to eligible DC residents, and are provided under one roof in an atmosphere of dignity and respect.
Thanks to the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and the contributions of thousands in the community, Bread for the City helps more than 10,000 people each month.
Last year, staff and volunteers provided groceries to thousands of hungry people, an average of 8,409 households each month.
Clothing donations from individuals, schools, offices and places of worship keep our clothing room stocked with seasonally appropriate clothes for children and adults.
Bread for the City has been providing primary medical care to uninsured and low-income children and adults since 1974.
