This year marks a milestone of great significance for Downtown Daily Bread.  It was 30 years ago–in 1983—that Downtown Daily Bread, as a mission of the Pine Street Presbyterian Church, opened its doors, its kitchen and its embrace to those who were hungry.  For 30 years, people of every kind came to eat at the busy kitchen on South Street, Harrisburg.  And for 30 years, Downtown Daily Bread fed them nourishing good food and treated them with compassion and respect.

And so with great joy and gratitude, we embark on a year long celebration of Downtown Daily Bread’s 30th Anniversary.  Invited to join the celebration are the community of devoted friends and partners, volunteers and benefactors and the staunchly supportive churches and synagogues. Without them, DDB could not have flourished and grown over the years.  Together, we will share and celebrate this success on October 6, 2013, at the Harrisburg Hilton.

An honorary Co-Chair for the event will be The Rev. Dr. Fred R. Anderson who was the senior pastor of Pine Street Presbyterian Church in 1983 when Downtown Daily Bread was conceived.  Dr. Anderson is currently the senior pastor of the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, New York City.  Joining Rev. Anderson will be Co-Chair Raymond F. Gover, long time Pine Street Trustee and former editor of The Harrisburg Patriot News.  Valerie Pritchett of Channel ABC TV News will serve as emcee.

The evening will begin with at 5:30 p.m. with an hour of mingling and music followed by a delicious dinner, a program including speakers, video, silent auction, and raffle.

Please mark your calendars and plan to join the celebration on October 6, 2013.  The evening will be one of “Celebration and Education.”
