Summary

We are a cooperative ministry of churches, organizations, and individuals of the Paso Robles area. We are primarily a crisis-centered ministry that provides food and resources for the transit poor, homeless and residents in crisis. We also serve as a resource center, referring clients to churches and other appropriate agencies where they might receive the help they need. One of our goals is to be continually developing a network of resources and programs to help people with ongoing needs. The focus of our help is not only to meet the immediate needs of our clients, but to also treat each person with dignity and respect. When possible, we help to change the circumstances that has led to the pattern of needing emergency assistance.

Purpose

Loaves & Fishes is a Christian ministry treating every person with the dignity of being created and loved by God. Our name, Loaves & Fishes is taken from the biblical event of Jesus feeding the multitude of people through a miracle of one boy offering Jesus what he had in the way of food... five small loaves of bread and two fish. As Jesus took it and gave thanks to God, the loaves and fishes were multiplied to such an extent that over 5,000 people were fed, with twelve baskets of food left over.

We believe God still works miracles. When we take food and other resources given to us, and offer our thanks to God, we find that we are able to respond to the needs of most of those who come to us for help. Through Loaves & Fishes, God has provided for the needs of thousands of people.
