During this season of giving, give the gift of time by volunteering with Bread of Life.
Bread of Life: The Mission
Founded in 1980, Bread of Life is a Boston-area faith-based ministry that seeks to “feed the body and to nurture the spirit,” according to their mission statement. It continues, “We strive to feed the hungry, the homeless, the needy and the isolated; to offer spiritual nurture, support and hospitality; to promote greater peace and justice by addressing broader issues of hunger, poverty, and need; and to conduct our work in a spirit of respect and nonviolence.”
These are lofty goals, and it takes a strong core of generous and dedicated volunteers to keep organizations like Bread of Life doing its good work. Bread of Life relies on a team of 500 volunteers as well as 45 partner organizations and the community to feed the hungry and the homeless. And there is always a need for more hands.
There are a number of ways to help Bread of Life achieve its mission. Individuals can work at the Malden Food Pantry to unload food, stock shelves, and clean. They can bag groceries at the Everett Food Pantry, prepare meals and packages to distribute to homeless families for the Motel Meals Outreach, serve evening meals, distribute flyers, and more. Groups can assist with evening meals at various locations and organize a food drive to benefit Bread of Life.
