    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.
