Support Our Mission - Monetary Donations

People struggle with hunger right here in Charlottesville. Map the Meal Gap, a project of Feeding America, found Charlottesville had an overall food insecurity rate of 16.9% and a child food insecurity rate of 14.8%.

Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry has been providing free groceries people in need in the Charlottesville area since 2004. We have the ability to "stretch dollars" to provide as many groceries to as many people as possible. Your donation of money will help us to meet the need in our community. Donations are tax-deductible.

Thanks to all our donors, no matter how big or small the contribution! We could not do what we do without you!

Donations from Traditional IRA

IRA holders 70½ or older can donate all or part of their annual Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from a traditional IRA directly to a qualified charity like Loaves & Fishes, effectively lowering the donor's adjusted gross income (AGI). Taxpayers whose annual income affects their Medicare premiums might also find that this provision helps control the premium cost. Consult your financial advisor for the correct process for making such a gift.
