Bread of Life’s Under One Roof feed’s the hungry

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Bread of Life’s Under One Roof vision of feeding more families more efficiently in a new state-of-the-art building has been delayed again by the COVID pandemic, but is still on track to becoming a reality. We moved out of 54 Eastern Ave, Malden during the Spring of 2021 in preparation for construction. Our temporary office is at 214 Commercial St., Suite 209, Malden and our temporary food pantry warehouse is at 109 Madison St., Malden.

  Although we were hoping to begin construction of our new facility in December 2021, we received a construction cost estimate that was much higher than originally estimated due to increased costs for labor and materials. We re-bid the project and in January received a lower construction bid. But even with the lower bid, we still need to raise just under $1 million for the project.

  We are seeking more financing from our bank, reaching out to existing donors, and working with the City of Malden which is assisting us in identifying funding sources for the gap. We are also reaching out to YOU, our valued supporter and friend, to help defray construction costs.

  You are the reason we are so close to accomplishing the goal of feeding more families in a safe and welcoming facility.

  Families will be nurtured Under One Roof, with access to a modern and updated food pantry, a kitchen to cook and serve evening meals, and a distribution center where patrons can “shop” and where we can package groceries for deliveries to vulnerable and at-risk senior residents.

  With your help, we will cross the finish line. Any amount is greatly appreciated, and your generosity will enable Bread of Life to feed more families and children in the years ahead.
