TBD, Host

Loaves and Fishes serves free, nutritious meals to people in need in areas where that need is greatest. Their enhanced mission emphasizes nutrition in every meal, which includes a local farm-to-table approach during Minnesota’s growing season. They are always guided by the vision that all people, regardless of socioeconomic, cultural or ethnic background, deserve to meet their basic needs for food, dignity and respect.

 
Loaves and Fishes free meal program began 36 years ago, in 1982, with one dining site each in St. Paul and Minneapolis. Since that time, they have grown to serving 2,000 healthy meals daily, are present in seven Minnesota counties, and are now the largest “open to the public” meal program in the state.
