Join Bread & Life this April for our 20th annual Johnny's Angel Awards Dinner, at beautiful Giando on the Water in Williamsburg. The Awards Dinner is a very special night every year, when we celebrate the achievements of extraordinary citizens who  work with us to fight hunger in Brooklyn and Queens. Meet our 2018 honorees:

Johnny's Angel Award: Dr. Jerrold Ross

Dr. Jerrold Ross was born just a few blocks away from Bread & Life in Bed-Stuy. He is the grand-son of Russian immigrants who came to the United States to escape the pogroms in Russia, and the first in his family to obtain an advanced degree.  After teaching in the public schools and NYU, he was recruited by St John’s University to be the Dean of The School of Education.  There he worked with then-President Rev. Donald J. Harrington to establish the Institute for Catholic Schools.  After retiring from SJU in 2013, he was named Dean Emeritus of the School of Education, and joined the Bread & Life Board of Directors, where he helped develop our new culinary arts job training program.  


Dr. Pamela Shea-Byrnes Award:
Anthony & Jeanne Butler

Anthony “Tony” and Jeanne Butler are Brooklyn residents whose faith and love for community and Bread & Life deserves our recognition, and the Dr. Pamela Shea-Byrnes Award. Tony has served as the Executive Director of Bread & Life for thirteen years, growing a small neighborhood soup kitchen into a thriving $3.7 million human services organization. He will retire in June and move with Jeanne to Portugal so they can better indulge their passion for adventure and travel.


Sr. Bernadette Award: Kathy Martinez

Our Sr. Bernadette Award honoree, Kathy Martinez, was raised in Brooklyn. She first came to Bread & Life as a guest, and then served as a volunteer. Her work ethic and cooking skills encouraged us to hire her as our first Food Advocate. Because of her cooking talent, in 2017 she received a full scholarship to The Culinary Institute of New York at Monroe College.
