Loaves & Fishes is a Christian ministry treating every person with the dignity of being created and loved by God. Our name, Loaves & Fishes is taken from the biblical event of Jesus feeding the multitude of people through a miracle of one boy offering Jesus what he had in the way of food... five small loaves of bread and two fish. As Jesus took it and gave thanks to God, the loaves and fishes were multiplied to such an extent that over 5,000 people were fed, with twelve baskets of food left over.

We believe God still works miracles. When we take food and other resources given to us, and offer our thanks to God, we find that we are able to respond to the needs of most of those who come to us for help. Through Loaves & Fishes, God has provided for the needs of thousands of people.
