Three of the Many Reasons to Support Our Mission

1
35% of those receiving food in 2020 were children under the age of 18. Not having enough healthy food each month can impact school performance, which in turn impacts career paths and the future of our community.
2
Many pantry visitors work, but wages are not be enough to fully support their household, many of which are multi-generational.
3
Loaves & Fishes is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax-deductible.
