BREAD AND BAKED GOODS

Every Wednesday

Every Wednesday morning, the Giant Food Store in Jennersville donates its day-old bread and pastries to our Center. Pick up some bread while you are here between 10am-3pm. Stay after lunch to win the baked goods during Bingo.

Please be advised that Giant has decided to sell their day old bread. Because of this we will be getting their 2-day old bread and the amount we receive has dropped signficantly. We ask that everyone please only take one per family. Thank you.
