What We Do
Loaves & Fishes fights hunger in our community by providing a week's worth of nutritionally balanced groceries for families and individuals who are experiencing a short-term crisis. Through a network of emergency food pantries located throughout Mecklenburg County, Loaves & Fishes fed 80,232 people last year, enough to fill Bank of America Stadium. 36% are children.
IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:
Calls for emergency food assistance have increased exponentially as more people find themselves with reduced work hours or layoffs. At the same time, many of our pantry volunteers fall in to the high risk group and need to stay home while volunteer groups scheduled for our warehouse have had to cancel.

For everyone's safety, please only sign up to volunteer if you are in excellent health, aren't in a high risk group and have no symptoms or known exposure to the COVID 19 virus.
