Volunteers are always needed

At Loaves & Fishes (Our Soup Kitchen at 2009 Congress)

Volunteers are always needed to help us provide a free hot lunch to about 250 chronically hungry guests daily (except Mondays), and breakfast weekends.

Some volunteers bring or donate food, cook at home or on site, or just serve and stay for cleanup. Families are welcome to serve with us — as are church groups, schools, civic organizations and businesses or corporations. Loaves & Fishes is a great opportunity to model and practice compassion.

Some sponsoring groups help us add evening meals by bringing in food and service, either as a one-time gift, intermittent gift, or by sponsoring a fixed night weekly.

What We Do

“Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon.”

Isaiah 58:10

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.”

Matthew 25:35-36
