Sacramento Loaves & Fishes feeds the hungry and shelters the homeless without passing judgment, and in a spirit of love and hospitality. We provide an oasis of welcome, safety, and cleanliness for homeless men, women and children seeking survival services. We serve 500-800 people everyday.
Founded in 1983, we are governed by a board of directors selected from Loaves & Fishes and from the community-at-large - people who have demonstrated compassion and concern about the needs of the homeless and the indigent poor.
We recognize the dignity and spiritual destiny of each person, and hope by our attitude of hospitality and love, to nourish not only the physical needs of those who come to Loaves & Fishes, but also their spiritual need for love, acceptance, respect, and friendship.
We serve each person with the belief that "as often as you did it for one of my least brothers and sisters, you did it for me." (Matthew 25:40)
