"Port Alberni is certainly a community with a heart."
- Maghen Girard
Effective April 27th, 2019 the Bread of Life Center will not be providing weekend meals until the board and staff have a chance to review current operations and identify a strategy to meet the needs of our community through the services we provide.
The Bread of Life Center operations are solely dependent on the donations we receive, as we are not a funded organization. With no guaranteed funding annually, we must continuously review and adjust our services.
Although we must at times make adjustments to the services we provide the board of directors, staff and volunteers want to reassure the community that we are committed to providing meals, companionship and support to our guests.
It is through the generosity of our community and donators that we are able to serve about 33 000 meals each year to our community members. While we review current services, specifically the weekend meals, we want to ensure community members still have access to meals during this time.
We will offer those in need of weekend meals a “protein pack” which will provide those in need with supplies on Friday to prepare meals throughout the weekend.
For more information please leave a message (250) 723-4049.
