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 37 emergency food pantries located throughout Mecklenburg County, Loaves & Fishes fed 80,232 people last year, enough to fill Bank of America Stadium. 40% are children.

Interesting Info

Loaves & Fishes pantries are just like a small grocery store where clients can select the foods their family will eat, lending dignity and cutting down on waste
Founded in 1975 at Holy Comforter Episcopal in Charlotte, 1,000 people were fed that first year. Last year over 80,000 received a week's worth of groceries.
Loaves & Fishes uses financial donations to purchase perishable items such as fresh produce, fresh meat, yogurt, eggs, cheese and bread.
