LOAVES & FISHES provides food and referral support to people of need in our community. Volunteers deliver to the recipients on the first and third Friday of the month. At present there are 38 families, totalling 110 people, in the program. The food delivery (meant to supplement, not provide 2 weeks of food) includes frozen meat for 2 meals, milk and eggs, canned vegetables and fruit, cereal, pastas (such as rice and macaroni), and canned goods such as ravioli or tuna fish.
WE NEED YOUR HELP

In addition, we just learned that this year our largest federal grant of $1600 will not be distributed to Suffolk County food pantries.
