Bread of life

“Sometime in your life, hope that you might see one starved man, the look on his face when the bread finally arrives. Hope that you might have baked it or bought or even kneaded it yourself. For that look on his face, for your meeting his eyes across a piece of bread, you might be willing to lose a lot, or suffer a lot, or die a little, even.” - Fr. Daniel Berrigan

Despite India’s progressive economic growth and self-sufficiency in food grains production, high levels of poverty continue to persist. Hunger undermines the ability of women to give birth to healthy children. The statistics of underweight children, victimised by poverty continues to rise, making them more vulnerable to disease. Moreover the dramatic rise in economy only exacerbates the issue of hunger.

Pope Benedict XVI reminds us that our faith calls us to confront the scandal of hunger. We must ensure that all have a place at the “banquet of life to which all are equally invited by God.”

The Bread of Life Project involves distributing fresh food to the poor & hungry children on a monthly basis at various streets and by-lanes of the city of Mumbai. The Food Distribution Program plays an important “socialisation role” where food is not just served, but served in an organized, friendly and dignified manner.

The team of Love Joy Hope is voraciously committed to the cause of feeding the hungry. The meal distribution for the period April 2014 - March 2015 reached more than 700 poor & underprivileged people of Mumbai. Lives are being saved by just a simple meal motivated by love.

Give one bread to one life and truly experience the joy of the Bread of Life!
