Bread House Week 25

Week 25 has come and gone! By the time you read this, we will have been open for half a year already! We started off working out of an SUV and now a more permanent home.
On another note of good news, Destin Harvest came back this week, which is a huge help! We did not get as much meat as we usually do, but it was certainly better than last week. The people are happy with whatever they can get. A lady stopped by who lives in the neighborhood. She commented that we have a food pantry here in Shalimar and expressed how great that is! More importantly, she asked what we needed because she was going to the store to bring us back whatever we needed. I guess the word is getting out; we are here!
