  • Mission:
  • The mission of Bread for the City is to provide vulnerable residents of Washington, DC, with comprehensive services, including food, clothing, medical care, and legal and social services, in an atmosphere of dignity and respect. We recognize that all people share a common humanity, and that all are responsible to themselves and to society as a whole. Therefore, we promote the mutual collaboration of clients, volunteers, donors, staff, and other community partners to alleviate the suffering caused by poverty and to rectify the conditions that perpetuate it.

  • History:
  • Started in 1974, Bread for the City (BFC) is a front line agency serving the District’s disadvantaged populace. The agency originally began as two neighboring organizations; Zacchaeus Free Clinic started in 1974 as a volunteer-run free medical clinic, and Bread for the City was created in 1976 by a coalition of downtown churches to feed and clothe the poor. After years of working collaboratively, the two entities officially merged in 1995. Today, we operate two Centers in the District of Columbia and provide direct services, including food, clothing, medical care, legal assistance, and social services to tens of thousands of District residents in need per year.
