Support Our Mission - In-kind Donations

In 2019, local grocers, farmers, orchards, food distributors, and food drives donated 700,991 pounds of food for Loaves & Fishes to give to our neighbors in need. Donations included meat, fresh and canned fruits and vegetables, baked goods, prepared foods, and dairy, as well as personal care supplies and home health aids that many in need cannot afford to purchase.

We happily accept donations from our community! If you would like to donate food to Loaves & Fishes, please check the list below for what we currently need. If you'd like to make a contactless donation, please place your donations on the picnic table at the front door and ring doorbell Tuesdays and Thursdays between 9 am and 4 pm and Fridays between 9 am and 2 pm. Best times to drop off a donation are Tuesdays and Thursdays before 5 and Fridays before 2. Call us if the door is locked or you don’t see anyone in the warehouse.

When Loaves & Fishes receives donations we cannot give out to our clients, we try to share them with other organizations who also serve low-income people in our community. We have given brand-new mattresses to MACAA's Hope House and the Shelter for Help in Emergency, costumes and clothing to the Shelter, Salvation Army, Ronald McDonald House, and the UVa Children's Hospital, and order-taking notepads to CATEC's food truck.

And what about the food we can't serve to clients?

After our final weekly distribution on Saturday, our surplus dairy, produce and bakery items are shared with other local non-profit organizations such as Salvation Army, The Emergency Food Network, and various UVA food pantries.  Food that has passed its expiration is shared with local farmers to feed their livestock.
