food bank

The Bread of Life Food Bank's Mission is to provide temporary food and other services in a compassionate, Christian manner to needy families and individuals associated with Lake City Community Church and its surrounding area.  


Bread of Life, as part of the evangelistic mission of LC3, will communicate a clear gospel message. 

"Then Jesus declared, 'I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry,
and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.'"
- John 6:35


Our goal is that everyone who enters the food bank will feel: Safe, Accepted, Loved. 


 “Come unto me all ye who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.” - Matthew 11:28
