Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. Our Daily Bread Food & Resource Center emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words. We're an organization, established in 2017, driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support, as we started as a combination of several local food pantries. We offer 17 shopping sessions a month - four days a week and third Saturday - to fight hunger in Payne County. We affiliate with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma.
