In a short-term crisis, a week’s worth of groceries from Loaves & Fishes can help mean the difference between paying the rent, utilities, for medicine or feeding your family.
To visit a Loaves & Fishes’ pantry you must have a referral. A referral can come from a church pastor, clergy member, medical provider, school counselor, or many of the human service agencies located in Mecklenburg County. The referring agency must call Loaves & Fishes on your behalf to make the referral.
Loaves & Fishes provides assistance with groceries to be prepared in your home. We do not provide assistance with rent or utilities. You may visit a Loaves & Fishes pantry up to eight times in a 365 day period and must have a referral with each visit.
