Bread & Broth was very fortunate to have the Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club partner with us to help ease hunger at the September 3rd Monday Meal. The Rotary Club is dedicated to helping others and its members are involved in many community projects that improve the quality life for the disadvantaged. The club encourages its members to work side by side with the community in local serve projects and has signed up to host 4 additional Adopt A Days of Nourishment sponsorships over the next 9 months.
“We love being a part of Bread & Broth,” commented Ellen Dauscher, who is coordinating the Club’s sponsorships. “It is so wonderful to help feed those less fortunate. Their smiles fill our hearts.” Volunteering along with Ellen at the dinner were fellow Rotarians Andy Dauscher, Kelly Johnson, and Bob and Karen Senna. The Rotary club’s sponsor crew spent three hours providing incredible service in their efforts to help the B&B volunteers put on a Monday Meal which included a full-course meal, food “giveaway” bags and seconds for those who were up for another meal serving.
“Bread & Broth fills a great need in our community,” added Ellen. In addition to the Monday Meal, B&B provides a Second Serving Meal at the Presbyterian Church every Friday and food for children during the summer school breaks and a weekend food backpack program throughout the school year.
As an all volunteer, non-profit organization, B&B programs are all financed through funding from our very generous donors and sponsors. B&B is grateful to the Tahoe Douglas Rotary Club for their AAD sponsor donations and the time donated by their club members in their service to others.
