Preparing for Launch

Bread for the City's Southeast Center

Bread for the City is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing food, clothing, legal, medical, and social services to DC's most vulnerable residents. From our two service centers--one in Shaw and another in Anacostia--we hope to provide a holistic approach to combatting poverty while maintaining an atmosphere of dignity and respect.

So what's this? Our new blog! On May 1st, BFC will officially launch this blog to talk about some of the issues that specifically affect the low-income clients we serve. Gathering the insights of both BFC staff members and community leaders across DC, we hope to bridge the gap between the work we do on the front lines, and the policies that keep people in poverty.

The first issue we'll tackle is food & nutrition. Rising food prices, the Farm Bill, and a host of other topics have tangible consequences for our community. If you have something to say, and you would like to be a guest contributor, send me an email. Otherwise, be sure to check back on May 1st!
