Serve Up Hope & Resilience in Lawrence!
“For over 25 years, I have been a guest at Bread & Roses. Thank God we have
this soup kitchen. Thanks for being there for me.” - Susan F.
When we believe there is plenty for everyone, we deepen our capacity to share and receive - creating community.
This is the recipe Bread & Roses cooks up every day - giving unconditionally and inspiring others to do the same - fostering hope and resilience.
Your contribution creates a real place at the table for a neighbor in need. The cost to make a meal happen is just $3. $50 can ensure meals for a family of four for an entire week!
We’ve come such a long way in 38 years - and we invite you to join us as the fight against hunger and hardship continues!
