LOAVES & FISHES

Thank you for your donations during our Lenten Sermon series on the Lord’s Prayer.  We took in 487 pounds of food !!!

 

Who does Loaves & Fishes serve?

We meet the basic hunger needs of people in our community by providing access to nutritious food.

How does Loaves & Fishes serve ?

Loaves & Fishes provides a week’s worth of nutritious groceries to individuals and families in a short-term crisis. In 2013, Loaves & Fishes provided groceries to 78,602 people throughout Charlotte at 17 pantries. Loaves and Fishes believes that access to nutritious food is a fundamental human right.

Therefore, we are guided by the following core values:

  • Dignity:  We believe that all people have inherent worth. We are committed to equitable and inclusive treatment. We strive to provide quality service to our clients.
  • Stewardship: We efficiently leverage donated resources and volunteer time to further the mission of Loaves & Fishes.
  • Collaboration:  We will work with a diverse group of organizations, public and private, to ensure optimal service to our clients and to avoid duplication of services in our community.
