Support Our Mission

There are a number of ways to support our mission with donations, as well as goods and services, and easy giving programs.

Why Loaves & Fishes?

As the largest agency of the local Food Bank, we are working to strengthen our community by combatting hunger.

Three of the Many Reasons to Support Our Mission

1
38% of those we serve are children under the age of 18. Malnutrition impacts school performance, which in turn impacts career paths and the future of our community.
2
Many of our clients work, but wages may not be enough to fully support their families, many of which are multi-generational.
3
Loaves & Fishes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible.
