Join the ranks of the many respected companies in the Merrimack Valley that are meeting their philanthropic goals by contributing funds or large quantities of pantry items - making a huge impact!
Churches, non-profit groups, and larger organizations can help by providing cooked meals, pantry supplies, or ingredients for our evening meals. Contact Rina Krah  for details.


Contributions by check

Bread & Roses
58 Newbury Street
Lawrence, MA 01840. 
Your contributions are 100% tax deductible.


Bread & Roses has long been a haven where our community can expect a warm, inviting dining room that feels like home, a friendly volunteer serving their meal and asking if they need a hat or gloves, and staff who know them by name.
We've pulled out all the stops to creatively meet the need during the pandemic, but it's undeniable that the ability to come together as a community has been disrupted. Instead of losing faith, we’re focusing on restoring the human connection that is so essential to who we are.

As we kick off our Annual Appeal, we’re excited to announce that we will be able to invite our Bread & Roses family back for in-person meals in early 2022!

Your contribution may help to fund a new dining space large enough to accommodate guests, volunteers, and staff to safely gather for evening meals. It could also provide gas for our two outreach vans, purchase fresh protein and produce for pantry orders, or make sure we keep the team who make it all possible (with a little help from our friends).

Pitch in if you can - donate, start your own fundraising page or sharing this one!
Thank you for all you do.
