Loaves and Fishes, a ministry of St. Stephen and the Incarnation Church, relies on the generosity of individuals for nearly half of our operating budget, with the remainder raised from private-foundation and government grants. As primarily a volunteer-run organization, all individual donations directly support our program, including purchasing food and the salary of our part-time program manager.

Other responsibilities, such as fund-raising and volunteer coordination, are carried out by an all-volunteer team, including members of our program management board. Communications costs, including the operations of this website, are covered through in-kind donations. You can donate to loaves and fishes using the “Donate” link in the menu above.
