Loaves & Fishes – First Weekend
September 1, 2024 @ 2:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 2:00 pm on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely
Loaves & Fishes Ministry is dedicated to providing a nourishing weekend meal to the homeless and poor of Baltimore City and creating an opportunity for fellowship for homeless patrons and ministry volunteers, trying to understand and live out the Gospel challenge of Matthew 25.
During the cold winter months, the ministry provides an evening meal every Saturday and Sunday night, consisting of sandwiches (approx. 250), hot soup (7 gallons), 2 cases of fresh fruit (generally oranges and bananas), coffee, and a sweet snack. While numbers vary weekly, the feeding program will serve meals to 150 to 175 patrons each Saturday and Sunday evening. From late spring through early fall, sandwiches, fruit, snacks, and bottled water are provided on Sunday nights.
If you are interested in participating in Loaves & Fishes ministry on Sundays, help is generally needed in food preparation (usually from 2 to 4:30 pm) and also in serving the meal on the Van (4:30 pm to 8:00 pm).
To participate you must first communicate with each week’s team captain for scheduling.
