The House of Bread serves a hot nutritious lunchtime meal every day of the year.
Family Dining Room
Families with children ages 17 and under are now offered lunch in our Family Dining Room, located adjacent to our general dining room.
Families are offered the options to dine in and/or to take meals with them.
To prevent hunger and serve as a bridge to beneficial community resources.
The House of Bread was founded in 1983 by Sister Dorothy Kammerer and Joe Bettman, with the belief that no one deserves to go hungry. Over 30 years since the first meal was served, the House of Bread today operates with that very principle.
At the House of Bread, we believe that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Everyone deserves to have a meal in a place where they feel welcome and appreciated. No one is ever turned away from the House of Bread, and everyone is treated as a special guest.
We prevent hunger by offering a hot, nutritious, lunchtime meal 7 days a week. Staff and volunteers work together, primarily using donated food, to prepare the meal each day. We serve lunch in two dining rooms, with one being specifically for our families with children.
We don’t believe in duplicating programs or resources offered by other social service agencies in the area. So while our guests enjoy lunch, we offer them referrals and assistance in accessing needed resources. We help our guests with everything from a simple phone call, referral to emergency shelter, to help with finding a preschool for their children..
