The Bread of Life program started in March 2020, providing non-perishable items across our nine county service area. There are no income guidelines or restrictions to receive a box of food. Boxes include supplemental food items that change weekly (typically rice, beans, juice, soup, pasta, canned tomatoes/tomato sauce, canned vegetables/fruit, canned protein, and frozen protein as available). A box will feed a family of 1-3 individuals for approximately 4 days. To receive food - please call 269-910-3578 today!
All food requests must be called in by Friday at 5pm to receive food for the following week.
We also deliver food to partnering agencies/organizations across our nine-county area as listed below:
