Fishes & Loaves

143 Ministries food distribution operation, Fishes & Loaves, was started to help feed children in need and seniors unable to leave their homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Through partnering with local businesses, churches, organizations, and individuals we are currently providing meal boxes to hundreds of families per week. That number continues to grow daily.

If you or someone you know is in need of food or if you would like to partner with us to help feed those in need within our community, please contact us at or call us at 1-800-560-7143

And if you give even a cup of cold water to one of the least of my followers, you will surely be rewarded.

Matthew 10:42
