Need food? Whether you're having a hard time or have faced food insecurity for years, you don't need to struggle alone.


What's it like to visit the pantry?


The market at Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry is just like a small grocery store. A friendly volunteer receptionist will welcome you and take minimal, basic information. If you want, a volunteer will help you pick groceries from the shelves, freezer, fresh produce tables and bakery area. There's never a charge for food, and you're welcome to shop twice a month. Once we relocate to our future home, you'll be able to shop as often as need be.

We won't ask personal questions


Loaves & Fishes makes getting food assistance as easy as possible. When you shop with us, you won't need a referral or money, and we won't ask you a lot of questions. We just need basic information like your name, contact information, and names of family members who might use the pantry.
