Breadcoin was created in 2015 and launched in DC in 2016.
Breadcoin is a DC-based organization that began in 2016 in the Union Station neighborhood. We are now in seven of eight wards in the city. Breadcoin destigmatizes hunger and bridges divides. The same coin used in Northwest DC is the same coin used in Southeast DC. Breadcoin makes sure everyone is included at the table.
Breadcoin is proud to partner with many local organizations and churches throughout the DMV. Some of the groups we work with include Children’s National Hospital, City Center Public Charter Schools, the Metro Police Foundation, the Mayor’s Office of Community Relations and Services, DC Dream Center, Grace Capital City Church, Harvest Life Fellowship, Petworth United Methodist Church, Pennsylvania Avenue Baptist Church, and many others.
“I love being part of a Breadcoin event. It is a great occasion to feed the community. I love helping out people and that is something that my grandmother always wanted to do. I’m living her dream for her.”
“Breadcoin is an outstanding response to the problems of hunger and community cohesion. It’s a very flexible response. I’ve been so impressed with the ability of Breadcoin to work with schools, to work with police, to work with churches, and to work with community organizations to reach out and help address the felt needs of the community.”
“It’s effortless to us. All we had to do was teach our team how to ring it in and explain what it was as a vendor. It was a way of connecting with people who wanted to help the community.”
