Bread of Life

At Bread of Life, the simple fare is as plain as our purpose: to share our food with those who have none.  We are here to serve everyone – the unemployed and underemployed, single parent families, the elderly and neighbors with physical or emotional disabilities.  We serve a hot meal six days a week and feed anywhere from 150-200 of our neighbors each day.  Since 2005, Lake Toxaway Charities has been partnering with us at Bread of Life, providing funding for food and capital needs so that we can continue to share meals and love with our neighbors in Transylvania County.
