Bread of Life

Bread of Life Food Ministries


From 2011 to 2018, the Frederick Rescue Mission’s Bread of Life Kitchen has served over 130,000 meals annually. More than 350 people come daily to the Mission for a warm and satisfying breakfast and/or lunch. At the Mission, we serve breakfast and lunch 365 days a year.  Without the Mission, some of our neighbors would not know where they would get their next meal.

The Mission’s Food Distribution Center offers families and individuals free donated perishable goods, which they can take home with them to help provide food for themselves and their families. Food items are received daily from local grocery stores, restaurants, and various food providers. The Mission serves over 100,000 individuals each year through the Food Distribution center.

The services provided through Bread of Life would not be possible without community partners including the Maryland Food Bank, who provide thousands of pounds of fresh and non-perishable foods for free to our community in front of the Mission periodically. We would not be able to make a mark on hunger without these generous people, businesses, and organizations.
