Paying it forward at the Bread of Life Soup Kitchen

"The Bread of Life Soup Kitchen has been the best of help to myself and my family….We were homeless and hungry with nowhere to go. At that time, we were expecting a very handsome baby boy, Dustin, Jr.
Roaming around Augusta trying to get things settled had eventually led us to the Bread of Life. When we first started eating at this lovely place we grew to love the food and staff. I remember the first day we walked in. We were greeted with a “hello” and happy faces. It had made my husband and I feel like we had a home and family. After a week or two of going in to eat, I decided to volunteer as my way of saying thank you for the kind heart and amazing help.
After I started with the Bread of Life was when I met Pat. Pat is an amazing woman with a big heart. She definitely has a love for what she does. I notice how she is always behind the counter working and helping. She always finds something to do.
People like Pat and the rest of the helping hands throughout Bread of Life are amazing and inspiring people. They definitely saved my life and taught me that there is always room to grow. If you ever have the chance, I encourage you to stop in for something to eat or even go out and volunteer! The whole place is definitely a lifesaver, and I don’t know what I would have done without it."
