FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - A lot of charities rely on people to fork over some "bread" to help fill their coffers this time of year.
Monday morning, Aunt Millie's Bakery donated literal bread to the Community Harvest Food Bank, 2,400 loaves to be exact.
They will be used to help feed people in our area who rely on the pantry every week.
And since this time of year can be especially difficult for people who need help, the donation came at just the right time.
Claudia Johnson with Community Harvest Food Bank says, “This is a big donation, over 33-hundred pounds of bread. Bread goes very quickly, in my house or anyone's house. And, the bread we got today will probably go by the end of the day. This gives you an idea how many folks we serve.”
Community Harvest serves more than 21,000 people every week.
Aunt Millie's is donating more than a thousand loaves every day this holiday season.
