God’s Purpose Ministries (God’s Purpose Unlimited) is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that has been classified by the IRS as a Public Charity. We are both a local and international ministry. Bread of Life is our food distribution ministry which provides free food to hard-working but needy families in Los Angeles, Hollywood, and across the San Fernando Valley on a daily basis. We have been serving the community for over 11 years now, thanks to Trader Joe’s, Amazon Fresh, Whole Foods, and other generous companies in the community. Starting February of 2021, Olive Market will be joining us.
Just to give you the overall picture, before Covid-19 our ministry has gone from 10 volunteers, receiving food from 2 Trader Joe’s locations, and distributing that food 4 times a week to about 200 families/week. Today we have over 50 volunteers, receiving food from 4 Trader Joe’s Stores, Amazon Fresh, and Whole Foods. We’re distributing food 11 times a week to provide food to about 2,000 households/families per week. That’s about 8,000 people/month. We provide food for three small Christian schools in the San Fernando Valley, and we are adding an additional school next month. In addition we deliver food to 50 families/week on an emergency basis. These are families and individuals who have cancer, are too old to drive, are without transportation, they are scared to come out in public, and or don’t have family to help them. Due to Covid-19 and other economic factors, the number of families we serve continues to grow exponentially. That is why we reach out to LOCAL RETAILERS. Our team works hard to ensure that all the donated food we receive goes to good use and quickly gets to those who need it the most. We feed the homeless in the community by donating weekly a box truck full of food to our partners at Hope of the Valley Rescue Mission. We have recently expanded our services to the homeless in Oakland, needy children in Mexico, and we are helping build an orphanage for 4,000 children in Nigeria. (I’ve visited the orphans myself) Our team is very dedicated, hard-working, available and flexible. Whenever you need us, we will be there. Thank you and God bless you, Pastor George Williams CEO/Founder - God’s Purpose Ministries “We are serving someone somewhere…everyday.”
Our aim is to share the Gospel and glorify God by feeding the needy, the hungry, the homeless and the struggling families in the greater Los Angeles area and abroad in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Our staff has grown to over 50 dedicated and hard-working volunteers.
I had never had a desire to start a food distribution ministry, but I really felt the Lord wanted me to go down there.
If you are a grocery store or other food service establishment that is researching our organization. THANK YOU for visiting us. We are well aware that well established companies like yours may already have organizations in place to receive your daily food, flower, or bread spoils.
We just want to make ourselves available to you as a back-up organization that you may need from time to time when your current organization cannot pick up the food. Or you may be looking to replace your current organization with a new one.
Either way, we are available for you. We look forward to continuing to serve the people of our community who need a little help on a weekly basis, and we will hopefully be able to assist you in seeing that your soon- to-expire food or flowers are quickly, safely, and responsibly distributed to families who need it. If you need us, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
