Bread of Life is a soup kitchen located in Palatka Florida. We serve a lot lunch 7 days a week. The food we receive from Waste Nor Want Not greatly helps us to do so. We serve over 19,000 meals a year. The food we receive from then plays a very vital role in helping us to do so. Drinks, bread, cake, meats, seafood, soup - the list is endless.

The results of the redistribution efforts by Waste Not Want Not are absolutely amazing. Two million pounds of good food that would have ended up in our over-used disposal facilities have been provided to non-profit agencies that feed the poor and needy. Most of Waste Not Want Not's effort is sustained by volunteers as directed by Sandra, an outstanding Executive Director.
