COVID-19 Response                                                                                                                                                                        Loaves and Fishes has remained open throughout the pandemic, not closing for a single Saturday since March. We have increased our weekly distribution of food by double of what we were doing pre-Covid, offering pre-packed bags of groceries on Saturday mornings. Right now during this unprecedented time, you have the chance to dramatically step up and support our cause by donating today.

Please enter through the back parking lot on Chapel Street. Check our website to stay updated on our current clothing needs. We also accept canned goods donations, however, we ask that those planning a canned food drive consider instead organizing a monetary donation drive for Loaves and Fishes. We have found that through our connections with the nonprofit food sector, we are able to stretch your dollar farther and feed more people when we receive monetary contributions in place of food donations.
