“To help all people in our community live with spiritual dignity and independence, caring for themselves and others, and able to fulfill their potential as children of God.”
Loaves and Fishes Ministries provided meals for 5,626 unduplicated individuals in their soup kitchen, and through meals “to go” and pantry bags beginning in mid-March 2020. Each of these individuals was provided with free and nutritious food, warm coats, toiletries, gloves, and masks as often as possible. Access to healthy food for low-income populations is of critical need for advancing equity.
There are major issues of health and wealth disparities that Loaves & Fishes is addressing daily as we try and help our clients meet their own and their families’ nutritional needs. We are trying to help create solutions to address systemic problems through the individuals we are feeding Monday through Friday. We hope to be part of the difference between hunger and health that will advance this equity and so include everyone on the path to better lives.
