It is our mission to be a beacon of hope to our community, to aide the reduction of food insufficiency, by distributing nutritious, quality foods and products to families in need with a spirit of excellence, facilitating dignity with regards to their civil rights. Loaves and Fishes serves to positvely impact the lives of all participants.
Loaves and Fishes food pantry has been in existence for decades. It is a part of the Bread of Life World Outreach Center church. Over the years, the pantry has been an intrical part of the community, hosted various hunger relief programs, disaster relief hub for Suffolk County, CARE distribution center as well as a full service food pantry. During the COVID pandemic, we have been meeting the growing need for food and products using COVID guideline. We pick up donations, receive large deliveries, unloading, sorting, shelving, making bags and filling boxes for hundreds of individuals weekly. We need a large team of volunteers all during the week to set up and distribute to the community winter indoors and warm weather outdoors. Last year we fed over 10,000 individuals and there are not enough hands to get the job done.
