LOAVES & FISHES

 

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 nutritionally balanced groceries to individuals and families experiencing a short-term crisis through a network of 23 emergency food pantries located throughout Mecklenburg County.  In 2016, Loaves & Fishes provided groceries to 67,509 people; 48% of those served were children.

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.

Where and when does Loaves & Fishes serve?

Every Tuesday and Thursday at the Harrison Church Food Pantry in Bldg. 300, we serve clients between 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.  Now serving on the first and third Saturdays of the month from 10 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. as well.
