Ocoee, FL, May 6, 2016 - Bread of Life Fellowship,Inc. recently received a $20,000.00 grant through the Orlando Sentinel Family Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund. The grant will support the general operations of Bread of Life Fellowship and the Southeastern Food Bank.
We are so excited and humbled to receive such a generous grant! This grant will enable us to continue our mission of feeding the hungry throughout Central Florida and we thank the Orlando Sentinel Family Fund, a McCormick Foundation Fund, for their generosity and for choosing Bread of Life Fellowship / Southeastern Food Bank!
Can you image what 12,204 pounds of food looks like? That is the amount of food donated from school food drives. Bread of Life Fellowship is so grateful for the contributions of many elementary and middle schools throughout Orange County for setting up food drives. At one middle school their Jr BETA club even donated hundreds of dollars of gift cards. There are thousands of homeless students and thousands more whose family is on the cusp of becoming homeless throughout Central Florida. Your contribution makes a huge difference whether it is your time, your finances, your groceries or your prayers.
It all counts!! Remember those we nourish today will flourish tomorrow!
I am thankful for the partners that have been distributing the food and the Gospel, leading to 815 more decisions and re-commitments to Christ. Heaven is rejoicing at those added to his kingdom. I am looking forward in the new year to help more people in 12 counties as well as Jamaica, Haiti, and the Philippines. I thank God for all the prayers, financial support, and volunteers that it takes to feed needy people through programs and distribution. I pray for God’s wisdom and direction as we make partnerships for the new year.
