WHIO Radio House of Bread Virtual Donation Drive is back

House of Bread is a non-profit community kitchen located right here in Dayton. On average, the organization welcomes 300 people each day, serving hot, nutritious, lunchtime meals to anyone in need seven days a week, 365 days a year. It takes $4 to feed one person or $1200 to help those in need for just one day.
