Founded in 1980, Loaves & Fishes began with a simple meal of bread and fish for 11 adults and 15 children.
We Provide: Meals at no cost, Monday through Friday at Goodwill Industries and San Jose Vietnamese Seventh Day Adventist Church, targeting low-income families, disadvantaged individuals with a special concern for children, families, seniors, veterans, students, disabled, and the homeless. In addition, we partner with 79 nonprofit agencies from as far South as Gilroy to as far North as Palo Alto to provide free hot meals to their guests.
Loaves & Fishes has embraced an extended partnership model. We operate two centralized kitchens in Morgan Hill at the cost of $1 rent per year plus utilities. Our fleet of trucks including three specialized hot/cold temperature controlled delivery trucks and three refrigerated trucks that allow us to deliver an average of 25,000 meals per week across the Bay Area in a sixty mile radius from Gilroy to Palo Alto.
