Make a Gift That Counts - Give Locally

If you’ve never made a philanthropic gift before,
let Loaves & Fishes be your first.

Giving locally through Loaves & Fishes means that every dollar is an investment in your neighborhood. It’s an investment in a critical food assistance network that reaches across Greenville County to some of the most vulnerable among us. Won’t you make a gift through Loaves & Fishes today?

That’s right. Through, not to.

Because when you’re giving locally to Loaves & Fishes, you’re really giving through us.

You are giving to:

  • Local food assistance locations and kitchens
  • After school programs
  • Nonprofit daycare centers
  • Upstate Veterans in need of groceries
  • Families who are experiencing food insecurity
  • Victims of domestic violence
  • Seniors struggling with medication costs

Top 10 Reasons to Give Locally to L&F

  1. Giving locally through Loaves & Fishes is a terrific investment: Every dollar donated equates to $19 worth of impact in Greenville County!
  2. When you give locally, you have more of a ‘hands-on’ approach as to where your investment is going.
  3. See the difference and feel good knowing that you are helping to improve the quality of life of your neighbors.
  4. Funds donated locally go to work for the community daily. Seven days a week, our drivers and volunteers rescue perfectly good surplus food from grocery stores, caterers, restaurants, etc. We then deliver it free of charge to over 100 partner agencies in Greenville County,
  5. Food brings us together and reminds us of the importance of human connection.
  6. Donations to Loaves & Fishes are tax deductible — ask your tax consultant for more information!
  7. You’re helping the environment! Last year, we kept 2.7 million pounds of surplus food out of Greenville County landfills — redirecting fresh, healthy food to our partners serving food insecure neighbors. We believe food belongs to people, not landfills.
  8. Giving locally gives us a sense of belonging to the community.
  9. We are committed to transparency: 84% of our total expenses go toward keeping our trucks on the road and food on the plates of those who need it most. 
  10. Giving FEELS GOOD! Studies show that helping others can benefit your health, both physically and mentally!
