We operate a soup kitchen in Fellowship Hall 2 days a week, Tuesday and Thursday. Here at Loaves and Fishes, our goal is to make sure that no person in our neighborhood ever goes to bed hungry.
We are a totally volunteer based soup kitchen with great people giving their time and love to do what they do. Each food preparer has the required Food Handlers Certificate from Suffolk County and the kitchen has a Suffolk County Department of Health Permit.
We provide nutritious meals to seniors, families, and individuals on Tuesday and Thursday in a warm environment, serving approximately 160-200 meals per week.
Meals are served at 5:00 pm, but the doors are open around 3:00 PM for all guests to come in out of the cold or heat, coffee, tea, hot chocolate or a cool drink is made available.
Funds are used to purchase food and/or paper products when donations are not sufficient.
Our goal is to provide these healthy meals at a cost efficient price, and to maintain the dignity of each and every guest.
All guests are accepted who have the need to partake of a hot meal. We do not verify economic need.
When necessary we will provide a special meal due to a food allergy or a special diet (such as vegetarian).
We have been a critical resource, meeting the ever changing needs of our community.
