Loaves & Fishes rescues and delivers food to the hungry daily. Our mission is simple: Rescue food from grocery stores, restaurants, catered events, etc. that would otherwise be wasted and deliver that fresh, healthy food to 94 agencies that feed the hungry in our community.
In 2014 Loaves & Fishes:
Rescued over 1,8 million pounds of food
Helped to feed over 250,000 neighbors in need
Was able to convert every dollar donated into $11 worth of food
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
