Bread & Roses's primary purpose is to ease the hunger of those in need in the Greater Lawrence area, and the evening meal program is our cornerstone program. We serve a full-course, nutritious dinner five evenings every week. Anyone who is hungry or in need is welcome. There are no questions asked, no forms to fill out and no charge for the meal. An average of 200 hot meals are served to homeless or needy families, veterns, seniors, and disabled individuals each evening. In addition, each guest receives supplemental food items after the meal to take home.
With the recent addition of an outreach van, we’re able to provide community food and essential items to a growing network of partner agencies serving seniors, immigrants, veterans, youth, disabled and homeless populations. This includes the delivery of complete hot meals served in environmentally friendly materials. Currently, this program is the only coordinated food outreach service active in Lawrence.
