About Loaves and Fishes

Loaves and Fishes serves free, nutritious meals to people in need in areas where that need is greatest. Our enhanced mission emphasizes nutrition in every meal, which includes a local farm-to-table approach during Minnesota’s growing season. We are always guided by our vision that all people, regardless of socioeconomic, cultural or ethnic background, deserve to meet their basic needs for food, dignity and respect. We serve without regard to religious perspective and do not engage in activities that promote any particular religious cause.


Pantry Coordinator

May 2020 - June 2020 Charlotte, NC
“ I liked giving food to the needy, everyone working towards the same goal trying to be participatory in growing not only the organization, but their process. Becoming for efficient was a steadfast goal, everything was constantly changing to produce better outcomes in helping members and staff. Also the endless amounts of gifts was an incentive when working, but everyone was always supportive and worked to improve. It was not just an obligatory job, but a mission with purpose.”
