Calling all high school students! After completing a required orientation, teens can volunteer in several ways to support our mission. We have Teen Time created for 14/15 year olds working alongside other teens under the leadership of our experienced volunteers. For 16/17 year olds we offer the flexibility to volunteer with other teens, OR with our adult volunteers. Volunteer opportunities are Monday and Thursday after school and Saturday mornings.
Loaves & Fishes 2018-19 Teen Board
We also have a Teen Board. Congratulations to our President, Faith, Vp’s Will and Devanshi, Recording Secy Tim, and Immediate Past Prez- Ryan. We are pleased to announce our new general members: Chris, Aditya, Thrisha, Andrew, Isabella, Adira and Chandhana! The elected teen officers lead the teen board in the planning of events and activities to support our mission. The board held their first meeting in September and have begun planning their first project! During 2017-18 the board hosted a toy and book drive, collecting over 500 items for our client children. They also held a Teen Challenge in June to raise money for our summer nutrition needs!

Did you know that 1 in 5 kids can’t count on three meals a day? Now, kids aged 6+ can help feed other local children via service parties at Loaves & Fishes! In groups of 6-12 (accompanied by one adult for every 4 children), kids can learn about our mission and then get directly involved in one or more of the following:
- Pack healthy snack bags for kids
- Bundle diapers for babies
- Fill the shelves of our grocery market
This is the perfect opportunity for scouts, teams, faith youth groups or neighbors to perform hands-on activities that benefit our community! We book these in well in advance, please email email@example.com to check for future availability!

- Sponsor an all-school food drive/donation competition
