Who We Are

Our Mission & Values

To provide uplifting and supportive services that allow our clients to become financially secure and have a stable home. We promise to treat all individuals with dignity and respect.


The seed of Loaves and Fishes was planted in 1981 when a homeless man knocked on the door of Dr. Donald C. and Dr. Dorothy M. Femmer’s home at 2750 McKelvey Road. The man was given a tomato sandwich and was offered heartfelt conversation. That day the Femmers vowed that no one would ever leave their home hungry again. That seed grew into a small food pantry and makeshift shelter that served thousands of individuals and families through the ’80s and ’90s.

Today Loaves and Fishes has matured into a thriving food pantry and homeless shelter that provides food for over 300 people and housing for over 300 families each year. Loaves and Fishes exists to serve those who have been struck by economic hardships, providing them with resources and support to help them realize self-sufficiency.

The Neighbor of Hope program is a monthly partnership program that allows individuals or organizations to contribute to Loaves & Fishes on a recurring basis. From our experience, monthly giving allows donors to better forecast and budget their donations without having to write or mail checks. It also allows us as an organization, by providing a steady supply of funds that are needed throughout the year.
Yes, I would love to become a monthly partner!
