Love Makes us Unique. It is why we do what we do.
We believe that genuine faith in Jesus expresses itself as unconditional love for others. We stop to love the one in front of us through food, prayer, emotional support, and a helping hand.
The Bread of Life began in 2013 with a donated bag of leftover bagels from a bagel store owner as gratitude for the love and prayer of our co-founder, Pastor Pasquale Falco. Our food rescue has grown exponentially over the years and now recovers over 63,000 pounds of leftover edible food weekly.
The most important things haven't changed with our growth. The food rescue operations as well as one of the food pantries are still run from the Falco family home. In addition, Pastor Pasquale maintains his passion for those in need so he does the labor intensive job of food rescue and delivery seven days a week all year long.
Though the numbers of volunteers, food partners, donors and food recipients have grown, Bread of Life holds to the founders' unwavering commitment to love everyone well.
