ODB strives to keep expenses low and the per meal cost below $2. ODB currently serves over 67,000 meals per year and the demand for meals continues to grow. Every dollar you donate helps to feed a hungry diner in the community:

  • A donation of $38 will help feed a homeless person for 1 month.
  • A donation of $171 will help feed a hungry mother and child for 3 months.
  • A donation of $456 will help feed an unemployed worker for 1 year.

Employer Gift-Matching Programs

If your employer offers a charitable gift-matching program, consider multiplying the impact of your donation to ODB by contributing to Friends of ODB (aka FOODB). FOODB is a non-religious, public benefit charity, recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) corporation. It was established in 2012 with the sole purpose of providing funding for Our Daily Bread that qualifies for most company matching gift programs. Visit the FOODB page for details.
