Bread of Life is a nonprofit organization located in Malden that strives to feed the hungry, the homeless, the needy, and the isolated; to offer spiritual nurture, support, and hospitality; to promote greater peace and justice by addressing broader issues of hunger, poverty, and need; and to conduct our work in a spirit of respect and nonviolence.

This event is completely voluntary, but as we always do, let’s give back to those most in need and support our adopted charity, Bread of Life.
