It really does take a village . . .
It really does take a village to support the Our Daily Bread Dining Room of MOT, Inc. And, the Middletown, Odessa, and Townsend area does not disappoint. From Thanksgiving through the New Year, Our Daily Bread has been blessed with many donations from various groups in the MOT area. ODB is most thankful for all of these donations that fill our shelves and allow us to feed those in need a nutritional meal in a safe environment. Thank you so much to the MOT community for all of the donations to Our Daily Bread.
