Review for Bread & Roses, Lawrence, MA, USA
Bread and Roses has effectively responded to the needs of their community for 37+ years by providing hot, nutritious meals, and an array of critical life, health, and safety supports, all without cost, wait, or question, with dignity and respect, to anyone who requests them: They are well respected in the community because of their willingness to work with other agencies who provide services to the under-served populations so that services can overlap and prevent a gap in available resources. Bread and Roses has only three full time Administrative staff, their work force consists of hundreds of volunteers who supply about 1500 volunteer hours a month to sustain the mission. Truly a labor of love from within the heart of Lawrence, Bread and Roses has creatively shaped it's services to extend far into the community, and as a result, offering food to those who cannot / do not come to their 58 Newbury Street location.
