Loaves + Fishes + Dave's Killer Bread

In doing what I love every day, I've been so fortunate to meet and work with some of the most amazing people + organizations of Portland who are truly changing lives.  {And I say that with zero concern for my hip factor when I consider how corny that may sound}.

As many of you know Loaves + Fishes is one of them.  I have photographed with them for four years now and could spend days happily going door to door with their volunteers, documenting deliveries + gratitude + stories.   In total, they provide more than 5,000 meals a day to local seniors through their 34 dining centers and home delivery.  And recently, Dave's Killer Bread stepped up and made a commitment to donate over 800 loaves of bread a week to their centers.  If you haven't had his bread, it is da bomb and so packed full of nutty goodness, eating a slice or two a day is probably the equivalent of running 3 miles a day.   And for some of these sweet folks pushing through their 90's with humor and health intact, that's saying something.

So a few weeks ago, we packed up the van with meals + Dave + his bread and made a few deliveries.
