Kudos: Bread & Broth grateful for local food donors (opinion)
This year, Bread & Broth will celebrate its 30th anniversary of serving Monday meals at St. Theresa’s and its 10th anniversary of serving Friday meals at the Lake Tahoe Community Presbyterian Church.
Each week, Bread & Broth serves a hot, nutritious “Monday Meal” at St. Theresa Church, Grace Hall. On Fridays, soup and a simple entree are served at “Second Serving” at the Lake Tahoe Community Presbyterian Church (now at St. Theresa Church due to the recent fire). These two programs and the “giveaway” food bags distributed at each meal are supported by the very generous contributions and donations from local restaurants, businesses and stores in our community.
Bread & Broth would like to acknowledge and thank the following businesses and organizations for their support and generosity over the past year in supporting these two programs:
Twice weekly: Starbucks at the Y, Starbucks at The Shops at Heavenly Village, Starbucks at Crescent V Shopping Center, Raley’s at the Y, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken
Weekly: Raley’s at the Crescent V Shopping Center, Sugar Pine Bakery, Safeway on Johnson Blvd., Smart & Final, Grass Roots, various vendors at the Farmer’s Market at the VFW (when open)
Monthly: Barton Hospital; El Dorado Food Bank
Others: Safeway at Round Hill, Yellow Subs, Heavenly, Curtis Fong Bike Rides, Fallen Leaf Marina Store, Sierra at Tahoe, Riva Grill, SnowGlobe Musical Festival
For the dogs and cats of our dinner guests, the Lake Tahoe Humane Society has donated pet food each week.
Soup sponsors include Blue Angel Cafe, MontBleu Resort, The Ridge of Tahoe, Freshies, Primos Italian Bistro, Tep’s Villa Roma Italian Restaurant, Riva Grill, Cafe Fiore, Sonney’s BBQ Shack, MacDuff’s Pub, and the South Tahoe High School Culinary Department.
These very generous donations, along with personal contributions of community members throughout Lake Tahoe South Shore, have allowed Bread & Broth to feed food insecure adults and children in our area.
