A Grove of Monthly Givers

Collective giving has an impact! We call our monthly supporters “The Grove,” because they offer strength, resilience, and shelter. They block the wind and provide shade so that all who gather there are protected.

Every dollar we receive is converted to $19 worth of food delivered to those who need it most. A $5 monthly donation has an impact of over $1000 annually.

Imagine the good we can do together. 

Did you know?

The largest percentage of rescued food that Loaves & Fishes delivers is fresh produce at 30.9%. That’s 834,000 pounds of produce in 2023! 

In 2023, Loaves & Fishes joined the Local Food Purchase Assistance (LFPA) program, becoming an official distributor of farm-fresh food from South Carolina producers. In partnership with South Carolina Department of Agriculture and local program hubs–Swamp Rabbit Cafe, Feed & Seed, and Francis Produce Company, we help strengthen local food systems and support local farmers.

Imagine the impact of a full-time staff person within a community school whose only duty is to figure out what this school, what these kids, what this community needs. To locate resources within the community that can meet those needs and pull opportunities together to help these children reach their potential. Alex Byrd of Grove Elementary School is just such a unicorn…

We are honored to have been chosen to receive a Neighborhood Grant from The Starbucks Foundation. Thank you to Starbucks and Starbucks’ employees in our community for nominating us and for supporting our work to reduce food insecurity in our community. 

Loaves & Fishes is able to rescue and deliver $19 worth of food for every single dollar raised. That means every gift has an incredible impact.
