Thrive DC serves more than 2,000 clients annually through our Daily Bread/Daily Needs breakfast program.
In 2017, we provided:
- 153,000 Meals

- 1,000+ Clients Receiving Mail
Each day, Monday through Friday, we see 150 – 200 clients for breakfast.
Monday, Wednesday, & Friday we provide a hot breakfast. On Tuesday & Thursdays, we provide clients with fresh sandwiches and salads from our partners at Pret A Manger.
After the meal, Thrive DC has different programming for each day of the week. We provide activities like art therapy, music therapy, substance abuse counseling, and peer support groups. Clients are welcome to join in at any time!
Farmer’s Market for Homeless and Low-Income Individuals
Special mention goes to our Fresh Food Fridays. Every Friday from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM clients are invited to participate in our farmer’s market at no cost to them! Many of the community members in Columbia Heights come to participate in our farmer’s market, you do not have to be homeless to take part in our programs and during fresh food friday.
We are always in need of 6 – 10 volunteers to support our Morning Program.
Volunteers will help to:
- Prepare and serve breakfast
- Greet clients to the program and pass out coffee
- Coordinate our shower, laundry, and mail schedules
- Pass out toiletries to clients in need
- Other tasks as needed!
