First Annual Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays Hunger Partner Summit Brings Together Hunger Fighters in Meck. Co.

45 hunger fighting partners came together for the first annual Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays Hunger Partner Summit to learn more about all of the programs we offer and how to connect Mecklenburg Co. residents to our services.

Staff members shared the different programs available – from food pantries to food shares, meal and grocery delivery, nutritional services as well as our bilingual and social services team.

As CEO Tina Postel explained, “If anyone has a food problem, we want to be the solution.”

Attendees toured a food pantry and the Loaves & Fishes/Friendship Trays warehouse.

Many thanks to our host Holy Comforter Episcopal Church, where Loaves & Fishes began in 1975 and home of our very first food pantry.

As one attendee shared, “I am truly in awe and very impressed of what this combined organization has done and is doing for those who are hungry and/or in need of additional resources in Mecklenburg Co. … you have an exceptional group of workers who I can tell have a passion for what they do and are very knowledgeable in sharing information.”
