A Bread & Broth “Adopt A Day of Nourishment” sponsorship provides individuals, families, organizations, church groups and businesses the opportunity to host a Monday ‘First Serving’ dinner at St.

Theresa Grace Hall.  By donating a tax-deductible gift of $300, your donation feeds on average 100 dinner guests and covers the cost of food purchases, meal preparation supplies and utility costs for the Adopt A Day dinner.

In addition to the generous donation of an Adopt A Day sponsor, the AAD program encourages our sponsors to come and assist at their designated Monday AAD dinner.  Sponsors may have a sponsor crew of up to 5 individuals assist the regular B&B volunteers in the dinner’s setup, serving and cleanup  from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m.    Participating as a sponsor crew member offers not only the opportunity to see the nutritious and filling meal that your $300 provides but to experience the tremendous impact that your generosity has on those who are guests at your sponsorship dinner.
