We are now taking applications for "Extreme Bakeover 2013" If you know a family who would like to get started milling at home but truly cannot afford to do so, you can nominate them. You must fill out the application, which you can pick up in store, or download from the link below. Applications are due by Oct. 31. The winning family will be chosen in December and have their package delivered to their home as a surprise (so don't let them know!)
In 2007, God put it on my heart to start a ministry to supply healthy, real food to families who truly could not afford to meet this need for themselves. Over the years, we have had sufficient support for the opportunities that arose.
However, on Thursday, June 6, God brought a need to our awareness. An article in a local newspaper (that I seldom ever read) caught my eye. A local ministry in Cherokee County, GA was conducting a summer lunch program for kids that would otherwise go hungry. I immediately contacted the ministry to ask if Real Bread Outreach could supply the bread for the sandwiches and a cookie for the sack lunch – all made with 100% freshly milled organic whole grains of course!
When I explained to the person in charge what I wanted to do, she began to cry – then told me that it was an absolute miracle that I called that day. She then went on to explain, how one of her area volunteers had called to tell her that they were completely out of supplies and had no bread for lunches after this day for their area. So Real Bread Outreach has committed to supplying real bread and a cookie for the 250 lunches per day for the next week. If we can get support, we can continue supplying the bread for the remainder of the summer.
The ministry actually prepares about 1,000 lunches everyday and distributes them to different areas of the county. How wonderful it would be if every child in every area could receive real bread in their lunch. This just might be the only real food they eat all day!
Real Bread Outreach would absolutely love to provide all the bread for every area, but this would take supernatural support from people like you. Real Bread Outreach is a 501(c) 3 non profit ministry; so all your donations are completely tax deductible. Would you please consider either a one time gift or on going support for this opportunity as well as future needs that arise? Please know that 100% of your donation will go to meet these needs, as Real Bread Outreach has no operational expenses at all. If you would like to make a donation please make your check payable to Real Bread Outreach and mail to:
