*Important Announcement: As of Monday, November 23rd we require everyone attending a Loaves & Fishes Depot or on the warehouse property (including other non-profits waiting outdoors) to wear a mask at all times. Thank you for your understanding as we work to ensure that you, our clients, volunteers and staff are safe.
