Established in 1991, Bread of Life gives food and clothing to people in Wichita and the South Central region of Kansas, contributes to relief efforts during and after local disasters and also participates in an annual Thanksgiving food giveaway.  Each year, Bread of Life distributes approximately a million pounds of food to more than 58,000 individuals living in Butler, Cowley, Harvey, Kingman, McPherson, Reno, Rice, Sedgwick and Sumner counties.  

 

In 2006, Bread of Life obtained its own 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt determination letter from the Internal Revenue Service as a public charity.


Bread of Life, a ministry of Living Word Outreach, has been in operation helping those in need within the community since 1991.  Success in our food distribution process has been proven over our 23-year history.  Providing food and clothing to those who are in need is only a part of our services.  Networking clients to other services within the community and furnishing resource information is all part of our assistance to our clients.  With increased operations, we plan to continue such excellence through maintaining our high standards and routine statistical analysis.

 

Bread of Life is unique in that during nationwide and worldwide disasters we provide food and clothing  to victims in all parts of the world as our supplies are available.  Locally, Bread of life assists those who are affected by disaster.  Our desire is to help within the community and be a blessing to those in need.

 

Bread of Life provides avenues for local schools and businesses to give back to their community by volunteering in various ways.  Ninety percent of our operating  personnel are volunteers.  Our holiday giveaway has only been successful due to the volunteers and donations provided by the community.
