B.R.E.A.D. stands for
Blessings Received Each Appointed Day.
NEWS FLASH! We have a NEW location effective the end of August! After 3.5 months of searching, God has provided a place for us in South Gastonia on Old York Road. More details soon! Thanks to everyone who cared so much and helped us search! We will need lots of moving help on Saturday, August 21!
We have sad news. Our retired volunteer with many years of service and leadership, Jim Brackett, has passed away this week. His services and information is available at the link below. He will be dearly missed. Love and hugs to his wife Linda as she goes through this difficult time.
All work at BREAD, Inc. is done by volunteers (we have no paid staff or paid board member) and most of our food is donated. We share the love of Jesus Christ to those in need, by providing food and groceries to the homeless, elderly, and low-income individuals and/or families of Gaston County. Income to meet our monthly rent/utilities/food transportation costs comes from generous hearts like yours who care about those in need and from our God who has never let us down.
Please check our Facebook page at B.R.E.A.D., Inc. We would love to share our stories with you.
