    Bio:  Donna Ayer, Executive Director Poverty and homelessness exist right here in our community. Our clients do not have adequate housing, food, clothing, medicine, for themselves and their families. Poor economic circumstances might be due to mental illness, chronic illness, long-term disability, or underemployment either through job loss or lack of job skills. Many of our neighbors find themselves unable to afford basic necessities but together we can all help. I am privileged to serve alongside many amazing volunteers who give tirelessly with a welcoming spirit of care, concern and fellowship. In partnership with many community organizations and individuals, Bread for Life is able to address the challenges of hunger and poverty. It is with a grateful heart for our donors and volunteers and all the ways our community supports the mission of Bread for Life that we are able to fulfill the mission to provide for our neighbors in need. Missy Cipriano, Director of Operations and Volunteer Services The wise words of Mother Teresa, “Not all of us can do great things, but we can do small things with great love” is a guiding principle for me. My long term active service and mentorship in my church and community including establishing a laundry ministry in Bristol called “Laundry Love” has prepared me to serve the needs of our clients. The position of Volunteer and Administrative Director at Bread for Life is well suited to my heart to serve others.  We have many exciting opportunities for volunteer service at Bread for Life and I am proud to work with our clients and volunteers to meet the mission of Bread for Life.  https://southingtonbreadforlife.org/   Tofu Quiche with Broccoli, Asparagus and Shiitake MushroomsPreheat oven to 425’ degreesMakes 1 quicheIngredients1 prepared Vegan pie shell1/2 round cake of Miyoko's & "Herbes de Provence" cashew cheese 1 Tbs. ground flax seed1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar1 Tbs. water½ Block extra firm Tofu¼ cup, plus 1 Tbs.
