Our Service Area and Programs
We believe that food is a right and not a privilege. We provide healthy food options in a dignified and respectful manner. If you are facing an emergency, or need help in understanding the community assistance that might be available to you or your household, a representative can also help you regarding SNAP, LIHEAP, the Affordable Care Act, Health Assessments, Dental Screenings, Computer Classes, English Classes (ESL), Nutrition and Grocery Shopping, Job Search, and Medical Insurance.

Effective July 1, Loaves & Fishes Community Services will join forces with Naperville CARES. This permanent partnership represents a major step for both organizations, each of which has created strong program models and will now integrate resources and programs to provide an elevated level of excellence in service to the community. Normal programming will continue for both organizations as this merger moves forward. Gradual changes will be made over the next six months as the organizations integrate.
