At Dave's Killer Bread, we have monthly volunteering opportunities for our employee partners and their families. Learn how Crystal, our Community Outreach Coordinator, helped organize a lunch donation for the homeless community living along Portland's waterfront.

Our employee partners are also encouraged to find volunteer opportunities that suit their own interests and provide rewarding experiences. Learn how Michael Manning, a 30-year employee of Dave's Killer Bread gives back.

Community Outreach

Every year, we donate more than 300,000 loaves of bread to local food shelters and non-profit organizations. That's enough bread to make three million sandwiches.
