ODB accepts all hungry people and only asks, “Are you here for lunch?” In the typical serving day we serve 230 men, women and children representing all races. ODB serves the aged, the homeless, the unemployed, the disabled and the working poor. During the summer ODB serves about 30 children a day. For many of the elderly the human companionship is as important as the food. Diners do not stand in line, but seat themselves in an attractive parish hall where they are served by volunteers and treated with dignity and compassion.
As many of the diners have little that they can depend on, the sure, continuous service of ODB is important to them. ODB always serves on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, including holidays. ODB has never missed a serving day since the program began in March 1983.
