I am now honored to work with these amazing people at Bread of Life Fellowship! I have known about the organization for many years, but have just recently gotten involved and I am blown away by the honest character and passion of the employees and regular volunteers. They truly are terrific stewards with the items donated to them, making sure that their partner ministries are equipped to feed people in need. And unlike other food banks, they do not charge a fee for any of the goods they distribute...if an organization can make a donation they will accept it, but they will not turn them away if they can't!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get more volunteers involved on a regular basis to help with office and warehouse tasks.

I have been a part of Bread of life fellowship for many years , the concept of bringing people to christ through food is awesome. THEY GIVE THE FOOD FREE OF CHARGE to the organizations listed with them and accept donations only there is no paying! the leadership here is so dedicated to the cause of humanity and helping others. It is a blessing being apart of this wonderful organization .I have seen many lives changed and redirected because of this organization.

My name is Jacqulyne Jones, I am a Board member for Bread of Life fellowship. i met Mark Anthony 7 years ago collecting bread. He is a remarkable gentleman. He is very dedicated to the service of other people. Christ comes first then other people needs. He gets up early in the am to pick up food and other donations from different donors or stores.It becomes an all day job plus run the office with 1 full time driver and 1 part time administrative person and a faith budget! His family is very supportive but his love for God and Gods people over rides everything .This is a wonderful Non-Profit organization providing food and substance for the needy community at hand with a smile. i am proud to be a part of such an honest straight forward and loving organization. May God continue to bless and keep them.

Every holiday I begin my day in a positive way by helping distribute food boxes with Bread Of Life. They are always very organized. Everyone is so cheerful and helpful. I look forward to these opportunities to help every time the holidays come around!

Hi my name is Jeff and I have been associated with Bread of Life Fellowship for over ten years. Recently, I have had the privilege to volunteer with some of the organizations who receive food from BOLF and feed the homeless downtown and others living in the woods. It is incredible to see the impact that the work is having on people's life. This work is about so much more than food and yet the food opens the flood gates to so much more...

Even though I am a Co -founder and board member, I am constantly amazed at the way Bread of Life Fellowship operates. They operate on a shoe string budget. At times there is not at lot of cash flow and things look bleak. But that does not stop them. In 2010, 60,314 families received food and 4,101 received Christ through Bread of Life’s monthly food programs. Over 56,290 volunteer hours were recorded and 4,894,376 pounds of food was distributed through our warehouse – of which the recipients paid nothing.

All of this is done with 1 full time warehouse manager/driver, 2 part time office personnel , and the founder.

On top of the monthly programs , there is a program that happens at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The Food For Families program operates with a minimum of 600 volunteers that pack food boxes and then delivers the boxes to 900 or more local families. At an average of 4 people per family , that is 3600 people that they provide food for in one weekend --three times a year.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

When we were passing out food, and a small child came up and asked "How much money do I need to buy a pickle?" (he saw a jar of pickles we had) And my 5 year old son, tells him it is free, the childs whole face lit up. Something as simple as a pickle brightened his day. There are so many stories where people have been helped and some have turned their lives around, just because Bread of LIfe Fellowship cares enough to provide them with the basics of life. Food and someone to talk to.

I would like to see more funding for them. Also, more food sources that they can get donations from. The need is so great in this economy and there are more families that could benfit from Bread of Life Fellowship.

I volunteer at Bread of Life Fellowship at various times throughout the year and often help to proof-read grants before they are delivered. I am amazed how this organization operates with the dedicated volunteers and only two full-time and one part-time employee.
