Thank you, Fairbanks!!

The Bread Line was voted 2018’s top nonprofit by readers of the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. We also got a lovely write-up about our programs that you can read here.

Bread Line Inc. has its beginnings with James and Sharon Hunter who, in the early 1980’s, distributed sandwiches to anyone that was hungry on the streets of Fairbanks. It soon became evident to them that the need was more than they could provide with their grassroots endeavors. So, the Hunters reached out to Dick Farris and together they approached a local church about the possibility of serving hot meals from their basement and in 1984, the Bread Line community meal program was born. Thirty-four years later, the nonprofit organization is the umbrella for four other programs all addressing the issue of hunger and poverty in Fairbanks.

Our work is only possible because of the dedicated volunteers who give incredible amounts of time to our programs and through the generosity of our community who donates food and funds to the Bread Line. We couldn’t do what we do without you – thank you.
