As a non-profit, all-volunteer program, B&B is dependent upon our many generous AAD sponsors, anonymous donors and volunteers who have been an integral part of our success in feeding the needy of our community.

"After being a part of the community for so many years, it is nice to get a chance to give back to the people who help made this place so great," said Kyle Henderson. "Everyone is so nice and seeing the smiles on their faces makes it all worth it." Seeking to give back and help others, is a frequent feeling shared by our sponsor volunteers and the B&B volunteers who regularly give of their time to improve the lives others. It's a heartwarming experience.
