Food, Fun, and Friends!

(See this set of photos from the picnic on Flickr here.)

Last Thursday, Bread for the City hosted our 2nd Annual Parking Lot Picnic! Bread for the City staff, clients, donors, volunteers, neighbors and friends braved the high summer heat to come out to our Northwest Center for hours of food, fun, and Motown. We were so pleased to have the opportunity to celebrate with the community, and thrilled to have Food Program Director Ted Pringle grilling up his legendary smoked barbecue chicken.

Deputy Director Jeannine Sanford, Development Director Kristin Valentine, and Executive Director George Jones spoke about work from this past year, and our exciting plans for the future. George fielded questions from the crowd about our program schedule and our plans for a major expansion of the Northwest Center, and we also heard from several of our clients, who shared stories of progress, perseverance, and thankfulness.

Many thanks to our generous and supportive community!
