As the school year closes, children need access to nutritious meals. Food insecurity increases during the summer break without access to the nutrition provided by the National School Lunch Program. To help feed the need during the break, Loaves & Fishes is partnering with Ecumenical Hunger Program (EHP) to provide free nutritious meals to their clients throughout the Summer.
A special thank you to Second Harvest Food Bank for introducing both organizations.
Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen is open 360 days a year including throughout summer. We provide free nutritious prepared meals to anyone in need with a special emphasis on families, seniors and the homeless. This year Loaves & Fishes is on track to serve 360,000 meals to 200,000 unduplicated individuals, including 45,000 children in Santa Clara County.
EHP's mission is to assist local families and individuals who are experiencing economic and personal hardship. EHP provides food, clothing, household essentials, support, and advocacy to our neighbors to sustain them through immediate crises and to help them regain stability and independence.
EHP serves working families, seniors, people with limited incomes and those who have both emergency and on-going needs in East Palo Alto, Menlo Park and surrounding communities.
