There's a New Truck in Town!

Thanks to the generosity of Second Harvest Food Bank and the Richard and Lynette DiNapoli Family, Loaves & Fishes received an innovative temperature controlled food delivery truck. This truck will be a “game changer” for Loaves & Fishes.  The truck has a built-in oven that can carry up to 50 hotel pans of hot food such as chicken, side vegetables and rice, as well as a built in cooler for salads, juice and milk. That’s the equivalent of fitting 1,500 meals in one delivery truck!  

Thanks to Second Harvest Food Bank and the Richard and Lynette DiNapoli Family, Loaves & Fishes will be able to provide at least 180,000 meals a year to those in the most needed geographies.

Additional thanks to Delivery Concepts, Inc. for the temperature controlled truck body and custom inserts.

Volunteer at Levi's Stadium

We're looking for volunteer rockstars to spearhead the concession and merchandise stands during the events held at Levi's Stadium. This is a great way to be involved in all of the action of the event, or to engage in some team building. If you're a super volunteer rockstar, you can still sign up to be a volunteer manager!
