A group of ladies in our church loves to shop with coupons and more... you might even say they're gifted at it. Well... they've been using this gift for some time to buy great food at greatly reduced costs and donate it to area food pantries... Loaves and Fish is simply increasing this potential.
What is it? Loaves and Fish is about taking investments and multiplying them into non-perishable top quality food items for the Vandalia and Englewood Food Pantries. This will be accomplished by shopping with coupons, sales, and more to ensure the absolute best bargains around.
Accountability?Absolutely... Checks or cash donated through the church to Loaves and Fish will be given to this team. The Loaves and Fish team will then keep receipts for what is purchased and what is spent. This will be reviewed routinely to ensure that this ministry is meeting its goal.
How can I help?Loaves and Fish operates completely through donations. So far, they have more than doubled the gifts received, turning them into real food for needy families in your neighborhood!
Why Loaves and Fish?Cool, huh? The Loaves and Fish idea comes from Luke 9, when Jesus turned a small amount of food into enough to feed thousands. This is a ministry of multiplication!
