Community Minute: Volunteers serving meals to people in need

Play associated audio

Loaves and Fishes is a community effort to provide warm lunches to the hungry on weekends. The organization is a program of St. Stephen and the Incarnation Episcopal Church in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of Washington, D.C., and is supported by many other local churches, organizations, businesses and individual donors. Loaves and Fishes’ mission is simply to feed the hungry. The organization provides a meal to any individual who has a need, regardless of religious affiliation. Loaves and Fishes is dependent on hundreds of volunteers to prepare and serve their meals. Volunteers are also trained to dine and converse with the guests and, if they desire, connect them to other support services throughout the city. This volunteer force enables Loaves and Fishes to provide the community with a meal every Saturday, Sunday, and federal holiday.
