Food Distribution Center

Each year, through food drives; drop in donations; and food rescue, Daily Bread receives and manages 1.6 million pounds of donated food. We use approximately 400,000 pounds of donated food throughout the year in our dining facility along with about 250,000 pounds of food we have to purchase like meat, produce, and dairy. The rest of the food is distributed to community organizations who join us in ensuring no one in Brevard County faces hunger or homelessness alone. All of the food is housed at our Food Distribution Center located on Morningside Drive in Melbourne.

Food Drives
Thanks to the United States Postal Service, Boys Scouts, Suntree United Methodist Church and many many more partners, we collect more than 2,000,000 pounds of food to ensure no one faces hunger alone. If you’d like to hold a food drive, please contact Betsy at

Food Rescue
We work with a number of community partners to rescue food of high quality from companies that would normally dispose of the items and re-purpose it into meals served at our dining facility. If your company has items it would like to donate rather than destroy, please contact Jeff Hall at
