Our Daily Bread Financial Information
ODB Expenses — 2016
Staff consists of a Program Director, a Case Worker and an Administrative Assistant, all part-time employees.
Food costs represent only 10% of our expenses due to generous in-kind donations from many local businesses. Managing this supply of food adds to our staffing costs, but the total cost is lower and the food quality is higher.
ODB strives to keep our total per-meal cost below $3. We did not meet this goal in 2016 due to unexpected capital replacement costs.
ODB spends less than 1% on fundraising.
The largest source of income is from individuals; 50% of these donations are received in 3 months: Oct-Nov-Dec.
Financial planning is always a challenge since we have limited reserves
and the demand for meals continues to remain high!
