Please Pass the Bread was founded in 2009 by the late Rev. David Wilkerson, author of Christian bestseller The Cross & The Switchblade, and founder of Teen Challenge, World Challenge and Times Square Church.
After 55 years of ministry in over 50 nations, David Wilkerson humbly reflected on the events of his life and asked the Lord this simple question:
“What might I do for You at this stage of my life? How might I best put to use all You have given me?”
And God’s response was as simple, as clear and as tender as anything he had heard Him speak in his 78 years. He said “David…feed the poor.” With this simple instruction as its foundation, Please Pass the Bread was born.
Today, this ministry to the poor continues to grow and has expanded into many of the darkest slums around the world.
