Loaves & Fishes depends on committed people like you to meet our mission of ending hunger in our community.
Although many local faith communities support us, Loaves & Fishes is not church based and has no religious affiliation. We receive limited funding from local government, and are largely supported by our community: individuals, businesses, faith communities, and organizations who believe in our mission.
With your help, in Fiscal Year 2012, we:
• Enrolled 2,556 new families, representing a 71% increase over 2011.
