We're here for those in need.
A 3-Day Pantry Package twice a month for our clients, but we also strive to provide a variety of food so it can last more than three days. The purpose of the 3 Day Pantry Package twice a month is to provide a few days of emergency food to help carry you through until you receive your pay check, Food Stamps, or Social Security. We have helped a lot of seniors on fixed incomes, hardworking families trying to make ends meet, and the unemployed.

The Bread of Life Food Pantry has been in operation since November 2014 and it is still growing. The purpose of our Food Pantry is to help stamp out hunger in our community by supplementing food budgets of low income families who are struggling to put food on the table.
