I have seen God expand the territory of this organization in size, scope and sphere of influence over the past two decades. They are Christ-centered and are focused primarily on showing God’s grace and love to all who are seeking it through the use of food and provisions. They have developed an efficient and effective way to serve the community, and have increased God’s kingdom with hundreds of salvations in the process.
The founder of this non-profit is principled and works tirelessly to ensure those his organization serves are fed physically and spiritually. His is the modern day story of fishes and loaves.
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!
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...
Hi, my name is Doris,with my husband Jack, and other volunteers have helped Mark and the Bread of Life for several years now.Mark has worked very hard to supply to the people of central Florida and many other places with food for their souls as well as food for their bodys.We help by sorting food and packing,loading trucks,calling people or any way we can be helpful.
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.
see our video on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7D_hNBDT5TQ just copy and paste into the addres bar.
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.
I would like to say that the Bread of life fellowship has been a tremendous blessing to my community here in Kissimmee florida by providing food to those who are in need. They also help the local community church feed the homeless as well.

I am the warehouse manager at Bread of LIfe Fellowship, Inc. I have been with this organization for over 4 years. Prior to coming to BOL, I worked with other food banks in the area. The intregity at Bread of Life, for surpasses any other non-profit that I have been affiliated with. I am proud to say that I work with such a fine organization.
My husband and I and our church has been involved with Bread of LIfe Fellowship, Inc. for many years. It has been exciting to see the transformation of this organization. We are very happy to partner with an organization with such integrity.
I am the President of Bread of Life Fellowship, Inc. I should be first to write a review about this organization that has been in existance for over 19 years. What begin as a family project of giving away some snacks in a needy area in West Orange County, birthed the idea of a food ministry that would not only feed hungry bodies, but would feed hungry souls as well. We have touched many lives throughout the years and it has been exciting to see how the ministry has grown. We currently move over 300,000 pounds of food through our 4,000 sq. ft. warehouse and provide over 3000 food boxes every month to families throughout Central Florida.
I help Bread of Life Fellowship with a project called Food for Families. This event has been ongoing for 18 years. The community comes together to sort, pack and deliver food boxes to the needy in the Central Florida area. It is an event that I look forward to three times a year at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. God Bless Bread of Life Fellowship.
I have been a board member for over four years. I have seen many families served through the efforts of Bread of Life Fellowship. It is a pleasure to be a part of a wonderful ministry that provides for so many families every month.
Bread of Life Fellowship and President Mark Anthony is an organization and a person that you can count on. Mark work's this organization on a shoestring budget and makes miracles happen everyday.
The Bread of Life Fellowship exemplifies what it means to love others as you love yourself. It's an organization that constantly seeks the will of God as it relates to programming and caring for people. Not only is the organization concerned with stamping out hunger in the central Florida area, it also has a passion for the spiritual well being of the person. The Bread of Life Fellowship is truly an outstanding organization with a fantistic mission and a heart for service.
My family has come on hard time and through the genorsity of Bread of Life Fellowship, we have been able to keep food on our table. Bread of Life Fellowship is a blessing to many families just like mine. Thank you.
I help around the warehouse and at an event called Food for Families. It is exciting to be a part of an organization that does amazing work the for needs of the community.
I begin as a volunteer with Bread of Life Fellowship, Inc. over 4 years ago. I immediately saw the opportunity to obtain grants and additional funding for this worthwhile organization. I used my administrative skills to update the office with forms and letters that could be used to promote BOL in new markets. I am currently writing grants and serving in any capacity that is needed.
