Saturday Fresh Market Logo

Fish and Loaves Community Food Pantry needs help packing produce bags for our Saturday Market. Fresh produce is packed with care on Fridays from 12PM-3PM. Please, plan to wear a mask while packing to ensure the comfort and safety of all volunteers. Thank you!

"Every precaution is made to keep the market safe and efficient for both volunteers and clients" says Executive Director, Mary Hollens. "We've had many questions from parents about bringing their pre-teens and teens to volunteer and earn service hours over the summer. It's a great opportunity to get involved and we welcome their help!" said Hollens.

About FISH & LOAVES

Location:

25670 NORTHLINE RD, TAYLOR, MI 48180, US

Mission Statement

Fish & Loaves is a 501(c)3, client-choice, food pantry, "Ensuring No One Goes Hungry" in the communities they serve. It is a faith based, non-sectarian organization staffed by volunteers serving those in need regardless of religious beliefs. Located in a 12,000 square-foot facility, the pantry currently serves residents of seven adjacent communities--Allen Park, Brownstown Township, Dearborn Heights, Romulus, Southgate, Taylor, and Woodhaven.

Description

Fish & Loaves Community Food Pantry was first launched by an ecumenical group of Taylor churches inspired by a miracle story from the gospels-Jesus feeding the multitudes with five barley loaves and two fish. Fish & Loaves’ own founding and growth has been miraculous. Some of the churches involved had their own emergency food pantries and others did not. However, they all united to ensure that families and individuals had access to more comprehensive and long-term food assistance in the face of tough times. The client-choice pantry is currently the largest facility of its kind in the Metro Detroit area and has become a model for other similar community initiatives in Macomb and Wayne Counties. Since its grand opening in 2008, Fish & Loaves has also hosted visitors from thirty different countries interested in learning how Metro Detroiters are responding to the needs created by a rapidly changing economy.
