Our Daily Bread Hot Meal Program

Our Daily Bread is looking for groups to join the Hot Meal program, providing the casseroles that help to feed more than 700 people who come to us each day for a hot meal. Many parishes and other groups are already involved in this critical task - we'd be happy to help you find an existing group or start a new one! Preparing casseroles is also a great way to give back as a family, and teach children the importance of volunteering. High school student? Preparing casseroles for Our Daily Bread will help satisfy your service learning hours requirement!

Our Daily Bread is Maryland’s hot meal program, serving more than a quarter million meals to the hungry of Baltimore City each year. We serve nutritious lunches every day of the year and breakfast to seniors and individuals with disabilities each weekday.

Since June 1, 1981, we have never missed a day serving the hungry in Baltimore - in spite of blizzards, hurricanes, or any other occurrence.

Our Daily Bread is a place where all are welcome, where people whose lives are burdened by the hardships of the human condition are served with dignity and reverence. We serve with a passion and love for our sisters and brothers as we meet their need for food, resources, direction, and the building up of the human spirit.

Every plate comes with a warm welcome and a smile that is always worn by the volunteers who serve. 

How can you get involved?

We need volunteers!

The Our Daily Bread hot lunch program, where we serve lunch 365 days a year to 500 - 1,000+ people, is well know throughout Baltimore. Perhaps not as well know, each day we also serve breakfast to seniors and people with disabilities, and dinner to the men enrolled at the Christopher Place Employment Academy. Currently, we are in great need of breakfast volunteers Mon. - Fri. from 7:00am to 8:30am and Christopher Place dinner service volunteers every day from 5:00pm to 6:30pm. Individuals are welcome and this is also a great volunteer opportunity for a group.
