DC Food Pantries To Give Staff A Break

(Washington, DC) — A D.C. nonprofit is pausing its food program today for a month. “Bread for the City” apologized on Twitter but said it needs a break after three years of extended service during the pandemic. It posted a letter to supporters saying the staff will be taking time to rest, while also mourning those lost to COVID. Both food pantries at its Southwest and Northwest centers will reopen April 18th, along with a new location in the Southeast.
