The mission of Radford-Fairlawn Daily Bread is to feed those who are hungry in Radford and Fairlawn by providing a noonday meal at no cost in a friendly dining room and to homebound individuals through Meals on Wheels. Our organization has been in operation since 1992 and now serves up to one hundred meals each day and 20,000 meals annually. Our programs provide a reliable source of food for anyone in need in the community and enable elderly and disabled individuals to remain in their homes longer.
They say that when you cook for someone it shows them that you care. Although programs exist to provide groceries to those who are hungry, we are able to provide a homestyle cooked meal each weekday to those who are disadvantaged and may not have the facilities or ability to provide such meals for themselves. ANYONE is welcome to share a free meal in our dining room, no questions asked.
Our partnership with Feeding America Southwest Virginia provides us with access to food donation sites and training for volunteers to ensure the safe collection, transport, and storage of food items. Your donation will be used to purchase supplies and pay our operating expenses which include rental and maintenance of our kitchen and dining room, as well as rising utility costs. The success of our mission depends on assistance from the communties we serve.
We encourage the donations of food, facilities,supplies, and money. We are always seeking volunteers to help operate and maintain our programs. We pride ourselves in providing a respectful and wholesome atmosphere among meal recipients and volunteers.
