Work to be Performed:
This 5,000 sq. ft. project will focus on the basement with replacing flooring and lighting and a fresh coat of paint throughout the main room, kitchen, bathrooms, office space, laundry room, and shower facilities. The goal is to provide more storage, a better flow of traffic, and a more dignified space for all.
About Loaves and Fishes:
Loaves and Fishes began as an outgrowth of St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church’s practice in the mid-1960s of providing meals after Sunday services. When nonchurchgoers who were hungry began to appear in considerable numbers, the congregation launched a meals ministry. As Loaves and Fishes grew, other churches stepped in to help. They are now sustained by a partnership with 11 other churches, many of them in the suburbs, and diverse foundations, community groups, and individuals. Their mission and goals are two-fold: to feed people who are hungry in our community and to educate volunteers and community members about hunger and homelessness.
