Our Daily Bread Food Bank is part of Lake Whitney Ministerial Alliance (LWMA), a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the needs of people in the Lake Whitney area.

Each month we serve 300 families with almost 700 family members by providing over 17,000 pounds of food. Help us serve the people who live in our community - children, the elderly, and low-income families - by donating food items or by making a financial donation.

100% of your donation goes directly to providing food for local residents. All staff are unpaid volunteers.
