Bread for Life Programs

Home-Bound Meals

Bread For Life provides hot and cold meals daily to home-bound residents who qualify in our community. We also deliver baked goods and groceries weekly to those who are unable to leave their homes.

Lunch Program

Hot meals are prepared and served at Bread For Life at noon daily, Monday through Friday. We are located in the Friendship Hall behind the Masonic Lodge, 76 Main Street, Southington. After a full-course meal, each client receives a take-home meal.

Senior Services

In the spring of 2006, Bread For Life began a program to deliver food to seniors. We have expanded this service to reach all residents of Southington Housing Authority communities. We have also added Section 8 housing in this program.

School Breakfast & Summer Programs

We have collaborated with the Southington Board of Education to ensure that breakfast is available to students in all Southington public schools. During the past three summers, BFL has provided a food program for children in low-income neighborhoods, who otherwise would not have any food.

What they say of us:

We are honored to help Bread for Life in their service to others!

There is no way I could not do something. If God has given me a slice of bread, I have to share it.
