Here at New Life Community Kitchen our mission is to take care of the poor. We serve free hot meals Monday through Friday to anyone who wishes to join us. We have hands on ministry before meals by teaching the Word of God and openly praying for those who have needs. We provide staple meals with an atmosphere of godly fellowship by reflecting the love of Christ to all. Our crowd is diverse stemming from the homeless to the casual visitor. Anyone is welcome. As a community based ministry we offer others the opportunity to serve this community by donating their time, prayer and financial assistance.

The Bread of Life Ministries is a sub-ministry of Norvel Hayes Ministries, that provides food and other necessary items to the poor. Our vision is to provide basic needs to the poor as well as train and encourage them to be overcomer in life.

The Bread of Life Ministries allows our college students and church members the opportunity to work with the poor on a number of levels and situations, this allow us to help the poor and train our workers and students. Through the Community Kitchen and Bread of life Ministries we give out blankets, toboggans, toiletry articles and other items necessary for survival. We also have a boutique to give out clothing articles to the homeless. Your support allows us to continue these ministries.

In 2018 New Life Community Kitchen was averaging feeding 1300 meals a Month! We have fed over a million plus meals from 1988 to Present!
