MEAL PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Bread of Life Rescue Mission is a non-profit Christian organization in Oceanside that feeds seniors, vets, families & less fortunate every day of the year. North Coast Church has committed to bringing dinner year-round, every Wednesday night for over a decade. This project involves purchasing a meal, delivering it, and serving it. Bread of Life is offering dine-in services again starting June 1st. At least six volunteers are needed to stay and serve food in the dining room.
Meal Requirements: Bring a to-go meal that is ready to serve and is commercially prepared. Please include a main dish, side dish and salad. Bring enough to feed ~25 people. Sorry, food cannot be cooked at home. Feel free to check out the list of easy meal options. You are welcome to choose any menu you wish.
Dinner Time: Arrive with food by 5:30pm (really important!). The meal is served at 6:00pm. The entire meal service should only take an hour and at least six (6) people are needed to help serve the food from your group. An on-site team leader will be available to guide groups.
The Meal: All food needs to be purchased from a restaurant or commercial kitchen. Easy Meal Suggestions!
- Side dish: Pre-made casseroles such as mac n cheese, pre-cut garlic bread, potato salad, pasta salad, deli steak fries and coleslaw are just a few examples.
- Salad: Salad mix sealed in a bag or box is acceptable. Please include a bottle of salad dressing and any toppings you prefer.
- Drinks: If possible, bring two (2) cases of water bottles.
- Dessert: Baked goods, cookies and dessert are always a nice treat. Two trays of cookies from Costco are always a favorite, or two large fruit trays for a healthier option.
Above and Beyond: Donations are always appreciated. There is a great need for 3-compartment Styrofoam takeout boxes, cases of water bottles, individually wrapped chips, and plasticware. Most of these items can be found at Costco.

Food regulations by the California Health and Safety Code have changed the way food is served. The entire meal preparation must be made in a COMMERCIAL KITCHEN (Restaurant, Costco, Grocery Store Deli). This project is still very feasible with the help of a few people to pitch in for the meal. If you are not in a Life Group and would still like to provide a meal, we ask that you involve your family or friends to help with the expense.
