Bread House Week 44

(Pic. 1: All hands on deck this week! With donations from Destin Harvest, we had fresh produce and bakery goods for our customers to enjoy!)
Week 44 was busy, and we have some good news, we had 11 new families come to the Bread House. In the past, we only tracked all visitors. We did not break them out as far as being new or returning.  We will continue to track the new visitors. We had one gentleman who came to see us and brought some food supplies. He said he needed help months ago, and we were there for him, and now he can help us by bringing food for others!

If you have not stopped by the Bread House, please come by any Mon, Wed, or Fri between 9-12. We would love to show you around!
