Casa de Pan

Casa de Pan is alive and doing well! After 18-weeks we have collected over 5,100 bags of groceries and given out over 17 tons of food, all this has served over 2,000 individuals.

The stories of some of these people is just heart-breaking. Most really feel bad about having to ask for help but they have to. I’ve heard comments like “if it wasn’t for this church I wouldn’t know what to do to feed my kids”, another comment was “this is what a church should be doing.” One lady (I’ll call her Sally) walks a half a mile to come to the Bread House, she has 6 grandkids she has to feed. Her daughter has had trouble with the law so she has the kids. She was cleaning condos but that has dropped to once or twice a week. Every time we see her she cries because she doesn’t know what to do….but mostly tears of joy for having food to feed the kids.

These tears of joy is all because of your generous donations to the Bread House. There are 3 ways you can help!
