Bread & Broth is a non-profit, all volunteer organization whose mission is to ease hunger in the Lake Tahoe South Shore Community.
Our meal programs, open to all who come to our doors, provide hot, full-course dinners every Monday at St. Theresa Church Grace Hall and soup and simple entrée meals every Friday evening at Lake Tahoe Community Presbyterian Church.
To help food insecure Lake Tahoe Unified School District children during the school year, weekend food bags containing 7 meals and 4 snacks are given to needy K-8 students and over 500 nutrition bars are given to the LTUSD K-12 administrative staff and teachers to be given to hungry students during the school day. To ease hunger during the school summer break, 4-5 days worth of kid-friendly food is made available on Wednesday mornings to all children 18 and under.
The Bread & Broth program includes volunteers of all faiths and nationalities, and we serve the working poor, families in need, elderly on fixed incomes, hungry school children and those who are homeless.
Bread & Broth in affiliation with St. Theresa Catholic Church is a tax-exempt 501 (c) (3) charitable organization.
“Hunger and malnutrition can never be considered a normal occurrence to which one must become accustomed to, as if it were a part of the system. Something has to change in ourselves, in our mentality, in our society.”
– Pope Francis
