Loaves and Fishes

Volunteers are always welcome at Loaves and Fishes.  There’s much to be done when St. Patrick’s sponsors, or at any of the other meals as well.  It is a tremendous opportunity to give  back to the community and area we all love so much.  In addition to our guests enjoying fellowship and a hot meal weekly, they are allowed to take two meals home to be enjoyed later or shared with family or friends. Meals are also provided to two Senior Housing Units.  St. Patrick’s dates for 2020 are: Jan. 23, Feb. 27, Apr. 23, May 28, July 23, Sept. 24, and the Thanksgiving meal on Nov. 19.

In 2019, Loaves and Fishes operated through the generosity of 22 sponsoring groups including seven churches, ten clubs and civic organizations, and four local businesses.  Loaves and Fishes is always seeking additional sponsors.  St. Patrick’s has been a sponsor since the early days;  in fact, two members of St. Pat’s were original founders.  On our seven days, we rotate lead cook.  So, if you have a passion for cooking and would like to “whip up” a meal, with help, for 300 some month (or nearly 500 the week before Thanksgiving), please let us know. More information is also available at loavesandfishespagosa.org.
