Downtown Daily Bread Update

Downtown Daily Bread provides services to Harrisburg’s homeless people, offering daily breakfast and lunch, clothing, a Day Shelter with showers, and counseling services. Downtown Daily Bread remained open every day during the pandemic, with limited volunteer opportunities to protect the health and safety of both the dedicated staff and clients.

  • Downtown Daily Bread is now open for volunteers to help serve breakfast every weekday from 7- 8 am. Two volunteers are permitted at a time. Contact Craig Smith (717 566 4757).
  • Downtown Daily Bread is in need of underwear for clients using the Day Center and shower facilities. New packages of underwear may be dropped off between the doors at Derry Church’s office entrance, or contact Craig for pickup.  All sizes can be used, but medium and large sizes for both men and women are most needed.

Downtown Daily Bread is a mission project of Pine Street Presbyterian Church. It’s located on Third Street in downtown Harrisburg, directly across from the Pennsylvania state capitol.
