Soup Kitchen gears up for spring migration of homeless

With the early onset of spring this year, Bread of life Community Soup Kitchen has seen the migration of homeless through Iron County earlier then normal. Traditionally the homeless spend the winter in southern Arizona then move up to Washington for the summer.  The I15 freeway is a direct route that is taken for this journey twice a year. With the Bread of Life Community Kitchen located just a few hundred feet from the freeway we get many visitors while they are undertaking this journey. We are in need of survival/camping gear for these people who are moving to more temperate climates. IF you have any of the following at home that you are not in need of anymore it would be greatly appreciated.

Backpacks
Sleeping bags
Personal hygiene products
Water filters
Canned food

Thank you and God bless!

Hearty Sausage Lover's Spaghetti



Spaghetti day is one our most popular days at Bread of Life Community Soup Kitchen. We give out huge helpings and often get requests for seconds. Here is the recipe to share with your family.
Blessings!





Hearty Sausage Lover’s Spaghetti

Ingredients
         1 pound beef sausage
         1 bell pepper chopped
         1 onion, minced
         2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
         1/4 cup olive oil
         2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
         1 (46 fluid ounce) can tomato juice
         1 (16 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
         1 1/2 tablespoons dried oregano
         1 tablespoon dried basil
         2 tablespoons dried parsley
         1 tablespoon minced garlic
         2 tablespoons garlic salt
         2 pounds spaghetti
        
Directions
         Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Cook sausage for 30 minutes. Cut into bite sized pieces, and set aside.
         In a Dutch oven, sauté onion and mushrooms in olive oil until tender. Remove with slotted spoon, and set aside. Stir into Dutch oven: tomato paste, tomato juice, Italian tomatoes, and wine. Stir until smooth. Mix in oregano, basil, parsley, garlic, garlic salt, and sugar. Return sausage and onion and mushroom sauté to sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer for at least 1 hours. Cover pot if sauce becomes too thick.

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain. Serve sauce over pasta. Don't forget some parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy.

Just a helpfull hint that we have learned at Bread of Life soup Kitchen, if you burn your spaghitti sauce add some peanut butter until you can't taste the burt flavor anymore. works every time.

The van is up and running again!

Bread of Life Community Soup Kitchen has started their van ministry back up!
It will pick up passengers at 11:30 am at the Main Street Park pavilion starting on March 28th. The van is a fifteen-passenger van and will work on a first come first serve basis. The van will pick up its passengers and take them straight to the bread of Life Community Soup kitchen for a free meal then take them straight back to the Main Street part about 45+ minuets later. 


Sonrise Christian Fellowship was very gracious in allowing us to barrow their church van in order for us to pick up people in need. They also provided drivers from there congregation to help facilitate.
