Documentary: Our Daily Bread

When Dale Lindquist, L.C.S.W., D.Min., began co-directing Fordham GSS' Beck Institute on Religion and Poverty a few years ago, one of his first projects was to compile data on ways that New York City's faith community was serving the city's poor.  What he found out astonished him.

"Many don't realize how much the faith community is doing to help," said Lindquist.  "From large programs in dedicated buildings to very modest programs running out of basements in churches, synagogues and mosques, there are incredible stories."

A former documentary filmmaker who now directs the online master's in social work program at the Graduate School of Social Service, Lindquist combined his passion for social service with his love of film to direct, shoot, and edit, "Our Daily Bread: Feeding the Hungry in New York City."  The 45-minute documentary profiles three emergency food programs in New York City, all organized and run by churches and their affiliates.

On Thursday, May 2, 2013 Fordham University GSS held the Premiere Screening of the documentary film "Our Daily Bread", produced by the Beck Institute on Religion and Poverty.

Recently, the College of New Rochelle (BSW program), the Columbia School of Social Work, and Union Theological Seminary screened the film.

We are also proud to announce that this documentary was the official selection and was screened at three international film festivals.  In addition to the festivals, the 45 minute film received the Merit Award from the Best Short Films Competition
