Bread of Life offers a nutritious, homemade lunch to anyone hungry for food and/or friendship. Our goal is to develop deeper ties of trust and communication in the simple acts of preparing and sharing a meal together. Through this commitment to relationships we seek to help people find power and hope within themselves and within their community. Wednesdays: 11:00 am - 12:30 pmThe Agape Shop is located in the basement of the former St. Lucy's school.
