Thanksgiving brings a special effort from Loaves & Fishes to provide much need turkeys for the holiday as well as canned foods for Thanksgiving and well into the winter months.
In 2013, Loaves & Fishes distributed over 700 frozen turkeys and over 30,000 pounds of canned food items to our partner agencies.

Childhood hunger is a real issue in Greenville County. 49.5% of our children are eligible for free or reduced lunches.
1 in 4 children under 5 years old are living in poverty.
In 2013, Loaves & Fishes provided food for over 35,000 children in need and over 215,000 other individuals.
"How many kids in poverty have apples and oranges when they come home from school? These kids do because of you. The nutrition our kids get because of your group is incredible. It is better than most upper middle class kids get when they get home from school."Matt Reeves, The Frazee Dream Center
"The amount of turkeys that you brought me that afternoon had already come into the kitchen that morning by a church that I had no idea was coming to me. God gave me what I needed twice and that is a blessing always. God is Great and the provider of all and we couldn't do what we do here without HIM or YOU!!! So let me just say thank you!!!"
