Loaves & Fishes provides a week's supply of nutritionally balanced groceries at no cost to individuals and families who are experiencing a short-term crisis. Through a network of 20 emergency food pantries in Mecklenburg County, Loaves & Fishes fed 67,509 people in 2016. 48% were children. In 2017, Loaves & Fishes has opened 3 additional pantries, including two that will serve students at CPCC and Johnson C. Smith University.
