Loaves & Fishes Community Services
Loaves & Fishes Community Services is an anti-poverty, hunger-relief organization with a mission to provide healthy food and impactful programs to promote self-sufficiency. They deliver high quality, healthy food to low-income families in the southern part of DuPage County. Their food assistance program provides weekly access to nutritious foods through a client-choice market, curbside pick-up, online ordering, and offsite deliveries. In addition to food assistance, Loaves & Fishes CARES programs prevent homelessness and lead families toward self-sufficiency. These programs include emergency financial assistance, car donations, resource meetings, public benefits assistance, tax return preparation, and job search assistance.
