Welcome to Miracles, the Loaves and Fishes newsletter! This is the program’s way of keeping our friends and supporters up to date on happenings at the program. It’s also a periodic reminder that we need your continuing support of our work serving those of our neighbors who need a free hot meal on Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays.
MARCH 2018 UPDATE:
Interview with Ellen Baynard and Bill MacKaye about the founding of Loaves and FIshes.
CELEBRATING 50 YEARS!
As many of you know, the Loaves and Fishes program was founded in 1968, which means this year is our 50th ANNIVERSARY! To celebrate 50 years of service in the Columbia Heights neighborhood, we have several projects and events planned. We are excited to celebrate the history of the program, our guests, and the volunteers who have helped develop and influence the program throughout the years.
The above video is the first in a series of videos we are calling the Loaves and Fishes Oral History Project. The goal of this project is to collect and preserve stories and insights from people who have seen the program grow and change during different times since its founding. We hope you enjoy learning more about the program's beginnings from Bill & Ellen in our first video!
Be on the lookout for more information about our celebratory events throughout the year! We will send details through this newsletter, as well as from our facebook page and website.
Please feel free to share this newsletter with folks you know who would like to know more about the oldest church-based free meal program in the Washington, D.C., metro area.: *|FORWARD|*
