Summer Meals for Kids
Let kids be kids, instead of being hungry.
The school year has ended meaning 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 nonprofits including Ecumenical Hunger Program in East Palo Alto to provide free nutritious meals to kids throughout the Summer.
We need your help please to feed more of those in need.

Funding the Gap
Breaking News to Funding in the Bay Area
FEMA has declined funding for the Emergency Food & Shelter Program throughout the Bay Area this year. This means a cut of $11,000 to Loaves & Fishes, as well as other nonprofits in the Bay Area.
The Silicon Valley Community Foundation announced yesterday they will not be hosting #SVGives in 2017. Find out why in the press release.
We need your help please to make up the difference. With your support we have more than doubled meals served over last year. We are now serving a staggering 400,000 meals annually.
Please consider a tax deductible donation to provide nutritious meals to children, families, seniors, and the homeless.
