About Loaves & Fishes

Loaves and Fishes Food Bank is a faith-based 501(c) (3) non-profit organization that has been in existence since 1985.  We give food to the poor and needy in our community.  All our monetary donations received go to buy food and pay for rent, utilities, gas, etc.  This is an entirely volunteer organization.

We receive donated and salvaged food. We receive food from private companies, from individuals and from other agencies who collect and distribute food for the needy. Some of our food is provided by federal USDA programs to provide emergency food assistance to persons needing help to feed themselves or their families. We served over 1,194 different Carroll county households during each year.

In accordance with federal law and U.S. Department of Agricultural policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.  To file a complaint of discrimination write USDA, Director, Office of Adjudication, 1400 Independence Ave, SW, Washington, DC 20250-9410 or call toll free (866) 632-9992(Voice).  Individuals who are hearing impaired or have speech disabilities may contact USDA through the federal Relay Service at (800)877-8339 or (800)845-6136 (Spanish).  USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.

In 2007 we moved from a rented crowded facility into a new facility.  This new facility has enabled us to better service to our clients, our volunteers and our supporting agencies throughout all Carroll County.
