Our Mission

Loaves & Fishes provides a week’s worth of nutritionally balanced groceries to individuals and families in Charlotte-Mecklenburg who are in a short-term crisis.

Get Help

Get Involved

From holding a food drive to dropping off food donations at one of our 20 pantries to sorting food in our warehouse, there are lots of great ways to get involved.
