Daily Bread’s 10th anniversary
Fallon Daily Bread, an integral part of the Churchill County community that has served more than 81,000 meals, will be celebrating its 10th anniversary on Monday.
The program is a ministry of Epworth United Methodist Church.
“We feel that this celebration is something the whole community should be proud of,” said Ron Evans, a volunteer with the program and a member of the Churchill County School Board. “This program is totally community funded with no state, federal or local tax money used.”
Evans said volunteers with Daily Bread would like to thank the entire community for supporting this ministry and invite all volunteers, past and present, to celebrate with them.
A group photo will be taken between 5-5:15 p.m. in the Wolf Center, which is behind the church at the corner of Stillwater Avenue and Esmeralda Street. Mayor Ken Tedford will also read and then present a proclamation to Fallon Daily Bread.
Fallon Daily Bread began in 2006 when Mary Myers and Kathy Fraker felt a conviction to do something to help people in need. The program serves a hot meal to anyone, no questions asked, on Mondays and Thursdays from 5:15 6:15 p.m..
Evans previously said various church and service club groups, Naval Air Station Fallon personnel, Churchill County High School Junior ROTC and many other individuals share the work of cooking, serving and cleaning on different nights. Evans said it has been a community-wide effort and spirit to help people.
