SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – The commitment of Bread & Broth over the last thirty years has solely focused on the mission to ease hunger in the South Lake Tahoe community. That mission took on new meaning beginning in mid-March with the onset of the COVID-19 outbreak when record numbers of individuals seeking food assistance from the various programs and services provided by B & B.
Services previously provided by Bread & Broth have been modified. Instead of hot, nutritious meals served on Mondays and Fridays, individuals and families receive bags of non-perishable staples (canned goods, rice, soups, meats, etc), fruits and vegetables, bread and pastries, and dairy products (milk, eggs, and butter). These foods are distributed twice weekly at St. Theresa Church-Grace Hall: Mondays from 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. and Fridays from 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Food bags are also provided to local homeless families and Warm Room elders being housed at local motels. Any leftover food is taken to the Warm Room currently housed at the South Lake Tahoe Recreation Center.
