Week 66 at the Bread House

A record this past week was 10 new families visiting the Bread House. The total number of family members was 46. We average between 7-10 new families each week! It is amazing that we still don’t see a slow down in the number of folks in need.

Pic #1. Introducing Jon Peters (standing), son of Pete, Jon comes every Thursday to help with the Destin Harvest drop-off and breaks down boxes for the dumpster. Helping Jon this week is Theo Peters (sitting). He came to oversee the operation and make sure Jon was kept on his toes! Everyone is welcome to visit the Bread House and offer some help! Our hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 9am until 12pm.
