About us

The mission of Bread for the City is to provide vulnerable residents of Washington, DC with holistic services including food, clothing, medical care, legal and social services, in an atmosphere of dignity, respect and peace. We recognize that all people share a common humanity and that all are responsible to themselves and to society as a whole. Therefore, we promote the mutual collaboration of clients, volunteers, donors, staff and other community partners to alleviate the suffering caused by poverty and to rectify the conditions that perpetuate it.

Bread for the City has two centers. We are located on 1525 7th Street, NW, and on 1640 Good Hope Road, SE.
