Benefit for Our Daily Bread Food Pantry
Month of May
Join us as we partner with Carlos O’Kelly’s to raise awareness of hunger in our community and raise funds to help Our Daily Bread Food Pantry feed more of our neighbors
For many of us, purchasing the food that we eat is relatively easy to do. For a growing number of our neighbors, purchasing the food their families need is more difficult as they struggle with job loss and other financial hardships caused by the current pandemic.
The need is growing
The number of people reaching out to Our Daily Bread Food Pantry is growing. Nearly half of people coming to the pantry say they have suffered job loss or decreased work hours due to COVID-19.
We have seen a 36% increase in the number of families coming to Our Daily Bread and we expect this number to continue to grow as we live through a long-term recovery from COVID-19.
Join us in providing for our hungry neighbors
Join Catholic Charities, Carlos O’Kelly’s and Homegrown Wichita in raising awareness. We will be giving away a $50 gift card each Wednesday during the month of May to either Carlos or Homegrown. Visit our Facebook page for more details on how to win. The winner’s name will be drawn and announced each Wednesday.
We are here to support the community. Working within a drive-thru model, we continue to provide fooding to families in need. Learn more in the video below.
