Dorothy Day West
We continue to partner with Holy Cross Catholic Church to provide perishable food items to families on a weekly basis. We are distributing food to 120-150 households each day that we are open, and many of these are immigrant and refugee families. We are grateful to local grocery stores that donate product to the Daily Bread program, so that food in our community does not go to waste; rather, it goes to children and families who need it most.
In 2016, we distributed 627,386 pounds of food to 11,734 families in Cass and Clay counties! 50% of the people we served at this site are children and seniors, two groups that are particularly susceptible to the effects of malnutrition!
