Bread House Week 35

Week 35 was busy and another record setting week of giving out food. Destin Harvest came through with more produce this week! The people we serve crave getting the produce. It makes them happy to receive. This week we saw some old customers who came when we worked out of the back of the SUV at the very beginning of this outreach; it was like seeing old friends! Also, we had some neighbors in Shalimar that came by and donated food supplies! The Bread House really has become a community Outreach; we are so Blessed!
