Host a Food & Funds Drive

Help Loaves & Fishes Stock the Shelves!

Thank you for helping Loaves & Fishes “Stock the Shelves” by hosting a food and funds drive.

Loaves & Fishes picks up surplus food seven days a week and delivers to more than 100 partner agencies who distribute it to individuals and families in need. Your generous spirit and support of Loaves & Fishes’ “Stock the Shelves” initiative truly makes a difference.

Every food item you collect reaches the table of one of the 42,000+ people in Greenville experiencing food insecurity. Every dollar you collect in donations makes an impact worth $19, while a gift of $100 fuels one of Loaves & Fishes’ refrigerated trucks for days.

Watch this news clip from WYFF to learn more about stocking the shelves of Loaves & Fishes partner agencies in Greenville County.
