I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me. – Mathew 25:35 NRSV
On the second Friday of each month Marshfield Christian Church partners with Ozarks Food Harvest to distribute food from the USDA. This food (available to those receiving another form of government assistance, or meeting income guidelines) is made available free of charge to those in need in the community.
Beginning in December, 2015 the Bread of Life will be operating on a drive-through, appointment basis. We will be able to work in a few new recipients, however, if you are able to make an appointment, we will be able to keep your wait time to a minimum. This new model will dramatically reduce the time you will have to wait to receive food. Currently Bread of Life has been serving almost 200 families and over 600 individuals each month.
Those needing assistance are required to show identification, proof of Webster County residency and income information to receive the USDA food.
