Our Daily Bread is a community soup kitchen that serves a free, nutritious lunch meal Monday through Friday to the hungry and homeless in Denton County, TX. VISTA member, Nate Dears, is the leading man for writing grants.
On November 9, 2015, Denton Benefit League (DBL) approved the Our Daily Bread grant proposal. Our Daily Bread will receive $ 5,531.80, to purchase 1,152 self-heating meals ready-to-eat (MRE). A MRE is a self-contained package that has the following: An entree, side dishes, cracker/bread, dessert, beverage, condiments, plastic wares, and self-heater.
Our Daily Bread distributes two MREs per client every Friday to those who are homeless, during the colder season. With this grant, Our Daily Bread will be able to feed at least 500 people.
Our Daily Bread is a partner agency of the VISTA North Texas Project.
