Loaves and Fishes

At Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen, we partner with faith and community groups to provide an evening meal 7 nights a week. We generally serve 60-125 people a night, and the soup kitchen is open all year round. The only days meals are not served at the soup kitchen are Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, Memorial Day, 4th of July and Labor Day. On those days, the hungry are invited to eat at St. Francis House where we serve a holiday meal to everyone who comes to the house.
