Bread & Roses fulfills its mission to ease the hungers in our community, providing guests with a hot, nutritious evening meal and distributing food, clothing and basic life necessities to those most in need.
Bread & Roses has been providing free meals, clothing, hygiene products, childcare supplies and medical needs to the Lawrence community since 1980. Our soup kitchen, open five nights a week, prepares a three-course meal, homemade soup to dessert, for more than 150 people – men, women and children who have to be or want to be here.

"The Bread & Roses experience is woven into the fabric of who I am. I have been rewarded by far more than what I am giving to the organization. We might come to Bread & Roses exhausted from our day at work, to cook, wash, clean and talk. But, at the end of evening, we leave feeling buoyant." -Ted Hubbard, Topsfield, volunteer since 1983
