Our Daily Bread (ODB), a community soup kitchen in Denton, TX that serve nutritious meals to those in need is off to an amazing start in 2016. With the assistance of VISTA Nate Dears, ODB applied for the Dallas Morning News grant which was awarded at the end of 2015. ODB received 3% of the total grant fund, which was broken into three checks ($10,800, $7,385.85, & $14,814.15). The total amount Our Daily Bread received is $33,000. Because of this grant, ODB will be able to better serve clients by offering urgent/emergency dental, prescription assistance, and fund a staff position. Nate is currently writing several other grants to continue supporting ODB’s mission.
Our Daily Bread is a partner agency of the VISTA North Texas project.
