Daily Bread a Feeding Program
Daily Bread (also known as the Northside Congregate Feeding Program), located in Pittsburgh’s Northside, serves meals to those without a home or who are under-employed. We serve meals three times a week: Tuesdays and Thursdays 11:15 am - 12:15 pm and Sundays 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm. Our program communicates with other feeding programs on the Northside to ensure that a hot meal is available every day of the week. Food is served out of the kitchen of the former New Hope Methodist Church.
This feeding program is over a quarter of a Century old and has served over 250,000 meals to those in need! Most importantly, we focus on giving quality nutritious meals and straying from the typical foods served at other programs. Most Importantly, we focus not only on providing nutritious meals but also on providing a sense of community among our diners.
Anyone who is interested in participating in this program can easily do so by checking the feeding schedule on the calendar and calling the office at (412) 231-4900. We look for volunteers that are 14 years of age and older.
The Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank identifies Allegheny County as having a Food Insecure Population of 176,360; that is a Food Insecurity Rate of over 14%.
“It’s a really good thing for people to have these experiences and be able to see these people as real people.”
