Giving Tree Global, Inc. ( "Bread of Life") is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization which feeds over 10,000 people weekly in Westchester County, New York where 1 in 5 is hungry. We provide food, clothing, and support to food pantries, homeless shelters, and individuals.
Giving Tree Global works with a variety of partners to deliver food relief to those in need. A specific emphasis is placed on utilizing one of the most abundant resources in our community: excess food. Through "food rescue"our team works with local grocery stores, restaurants, and food distributors to deliver excess food that would otherwise be discarded as waste to those experiencing food insecurity.
While ending hunger is our mission, we do more than simply meet physical needs. We bring hope to those who see no future and assurance that every life has value. We bring the healing that comes through the grace of Jesus and the power of the cross.
"When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her. It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed."-Mother Teresa
The mission of Giving Tree Global is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and to demonstrate the unconditional love of God to people of all faiths by providing food, clothing, and shelter to those in need. We live by the simplicity of the gospel and of devotion to Christ, allowing nothing to detract from the power of the cross. We serve an extraordinary God who does miracles in the lives of ordinary people.
The vision of Giving Tree Global is to share the love of God and the redemptive power of the cross of Jesus Christ through local missions, internet ministry, kingdom businesses, and discipleship.
