The Latest News From Our Executive Director

    The Holiday Season is here! It is a time to enjoy our family and friends, have a little holiday cheer and be thankful for who we are, what we have, our family, our friends, our work, our health and our community.

    Loaves and Fishes is truly “Nourishing Lives” through our food and culinary program. This holiday season I ask you to consider giving a charitable donation to help us serve our community. We continue to serve 600-700 meals a day and teach valuable culinary skills to individuals needing employment and wanting to work in the culinary industry, we cannot do this without our community support.

    “What would Contra Costa look like without Loaves and Fishes in the community? Would more people be hungry, looking for food on the streets, eating at fast food restaurants because its cheap, or have no food at all?” There is no reason for anyone to be hungry. Loaves and Fishes is here to help and we are making a difference. I often hear from our clients, “Thank you, I love this place. It helps me eat a healthy meal!”

Ways you can help...
  • Volunteer at one of our dining rooms or kitchen
  • Make a one time or monthly donation
  • Make a 3 year pledge
  • Donate your required IRA distribution or a portion for a tax write off
   We appreciate every donation and volunteer. Loaves and Fishes has made a large impact in the County over the years. Thank you to everyone who is already a generous donor or volunteer who provide support to our community. Happy Holidays to everyone!
