Need Food? Here's How it Works:
We are a client-choice food pantry. We are committed to increasing the access to high-quality nutritious food. Shopping at Loaves & Fishes means you will leave with an entire grocery cart full of fresh produce, dairy foods, meat, whole grains, and other dry and canned goods of your choice.
Individuals and families are eligible to shop once every 30 days.

Other Information About the Pantry:
Mondays 1:00 - 4:00 pm
Tuesdays 3:00 - 6:00 pm

These are the ONLY times we are able to assist clients with food.
It takes at least 25 minutes to go through the pantry, so we lock the door early to be able to close on time.
The last week of each month are our BUSIEST times. Wait times decrease the first 2 weeks of each month. Occasionally we must lock the door early if we reach the capacity our waiting room can hold. If the door is locked during our normal pantry hours, but you need food immediately - you may receive an emergency food box.
HEAT/COLD ADVISORY - If you choose to show up before we are scheduled to open, please be aware that we will be unable to unlock the door until the listed times. Our wait times inside the building average about 1 hour from start to finish even during busy days, so we encourage families NOT to line up outside the building, but to show up when the door is unlocked and wait inside in our air conditioned/heated waiting room. We never run out of food and always restock during pantry for plenty of choices.
