Week 54 at the Bread House

Week 54:  The Bread House had a steady stream of folks this week. We see our numbers drop somewhat with the stimulus checks out, but they are starting to pick back up. We continue to see new families come to the Bread House every week. This week we had seven new families representing 21 individuals who benefited from this outreach program!

(Picture above)
Meet Lebaron; he is our weekly driver who delivers all kinds of goodies courtesy of Destin Harvest. They go to local stores and glean what is not needed and deliver them to food pantries in the local area. In one year, the Bread House has become the largest food pantry in the area, exceeding all expectations. Due to the large demand and the generous donations from our congregation and community, it allows this to happen! The Bread House has become a community support activity. All are welcome to come! Folks from Shalimar and Ft. Walton bring donations to help those in need.

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!
