Our Loaves & Fishes Community Kitchen has provided prepared meals to people who are disadvantaged in Greater Springfield on a daily basis since it began in 1980. Lunch and supper are available seven days a week. From July 2015 – June 2016, we served 77,741 meals.
Over 750 volunteers from faith communities, civic groups, area businesses and student organizations are involved in the preparation and serving of nutritious meals.
Loaves & Fishes is a life sustaining service and essential to the health of people who are disadvantaged. Providing meals is not only a way to prevent malnutrition and improve health, but also a way to connect people to other essential services.
