Spotlight on Success!

Asking for help may be one of the most difficult things a person can do. To have the self-awareness to recognize that help is needed, and then to seek out the help is another big step. We here at Loaves and Fishes would like to help everyone in the most dignified and respectable way.

Within the last month, 15 new families reached out for food pantry assistance – and that is a step towards success.

Volunteer Groups!

Looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity for your group? We’d love to have you. Volunteers help create the daily boxes for the food pantry clients, perform light cleaning in the shelter, special holiday meal distributions, and much more.
What began with a man looking for food and shelter blossomed into today’s mission and values. Join us as we continue to serve the community for many more years through our 41 Years of Service campaign. Where you can donate $41, $141, $241, or $541.

All proceeds raised stay local to support the programs of Loaves and Fishes for St. Louis because we all deserve a home.
