Bread & Roses Presents is a nonprofit arts organization with a human services mission that brings hope, healing and joy through live music and the performing arts to children, adults and seniors who are disadvantaged, marginalized, or otherwise isolated in diverse institutional settings in the San Francisco Bay Area.


Bread & Roses is dedicated to uplifting the human spirit by presenting free, live performing arts performances to people who live in institutions or are otherwise isolated from society. Their performances enrich the soul and promote wellness through the healing power of the performing arts.

The need for hope and healing through live music is as great today as it has ever been. Bread & Roses founder Mimi Fariña was a visionary when she started the organization back in 1974. A folk music star, she rose to fame in the mid-'60s in a duo with her husband the late Richard Fariña. From the early days, she was conscious of the ways that performers, as well as audiences, could benefit from increased opportunities to connect directly with each other.


Inspired by a 1912 poem by James Oppenheim, Mimi Fariña selected "Bread & Roses" to convey the spirit of the nonprofit she founded when she started bringing her musician friends to do shows for isolated youth, adults and seniors in neighboring institutions. Many of these performers still volunteer for Bread & Roses today.


Over the years, Bread & Roses has received awards for its community impact and effectiveness. Many other like-minded organizations worldwide have been inspired by their work to start related programs.​
