Fishes and Loaves Food Pantry is sponsored by the church with a simple mission: “We are here to provide food to people who are hungry.” The food pantry has been in operation since October of 2004. Fishes and Loaves receives food from a variety of sources to include local grocery stores, local farmers, local churches, community members, and Manna Food Bank in Asheville, NC, and community monetary donations.
 
Fishes & Loaves is an official distributor of “The Emergency Food Assistance Program” (TEFAP) food source program.  This program is available each Saturday that the Food Pantry is in operation.

 

Volunteer opportunities include:

MANNA shopping for food (Thursdays);

Stocking the pantry (Thursdays); and

Staffing the pantry (Saturdays).

 

Recipients of food are required to provide their name, address, photo ID,  phone number, names, and  information of everyone receiving benefits.  Contact Eecutive Director of Fishes and Loaves Ministry: Albert Lyons, III.  contact #’s – Church # 828-891-4360 / Albert’s cell # 803-960-3020
