Loaves & Fishes Community Services

Aurora, IL

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.

For it is in giving that we receive.

St. Francis of Assisi
