Downtown Daily Bread celebrates 30 years

Posted: Updated:

The Pine Street Presbyterian Church in Harrisburg held a luncheon Sunday to celebrate the 30-year anniversary of Downtown Daily Bread.

Downtown Daily Bread is a soup kitchen that provides meals every day from 12:30 to 1:30 in the afternoon, and never misses for weekends or holidays.

"There's a lot of people who are down on their luck -- or maybe not their luck, but just going through some tough times right now, so an establishment like this really helps out with feeding, and they can take stuff home for the end of the day," head chef Kobie White said.

The luncheon was held for 19 churches and synagogues that provide a majority of the volunteers for Downtown Daily Bread.

Since 1983, Downtown Daily Bread has grown to include mail service, job assistance and counseling to those in need.
