Bread of Life Program
Last Tuesday, the menu was lentil soup with hot dogs and pineapple-flavored drinks at the daily community kitchen ran by the “Torre de Salvacion” church in Zorillo (Ensenada). The program is one of the locations supported by the “Bread of Life” program. The happy faces of the children in school uniforms are a sure way of saying thanks to everyone that makes this, and others programs, possible.
