Bed and Bread Club
The Salvation Army Harbor Light and Acres of Hope is the home of Detroit's famous Bed and Bread Club! Our Bed and Bread trucks travel metro Detroit bringing food and comfort to thousands of area residents 365 days a year.
The red and white Bed and Bread Club trucks make various stops throughout the city of Detroit, in the areas that demonstrate the most need. At each stop, the trucks provide food to the hungry and homeless. Each day persons served by the trucks receive a meal that consists of a sandwich, fruit, beverage, soup (in cold months) and a snack. Hot meals complete with entree, sides and dessert (typically fruit) are available on select holidays and special occasions.
In addition to the truck, the "brick and mortar" portion of the program includes several shelters throughout Metro Detroit, including two located on the campus of the Detroit Harbor Light Acres of Hope. At the shelters, homeless families and individuals have a place to live and three meals each day. While a resident at the shelters, everyone receives personal case management to assist them with a return to live on their own. They get help with finding a permanent place to live, a career path, educational opportunities, utility help, legal aid, and more.
Throughout Southeast Michigan, the Bed and Bread program feeds nearly 5,000 people each day and provides shelter to 565 persons each night of the year.
