An oasis for adults & children

experiencing homelessness

Loaves & Fishes 40th Anniversary

2023 marks our 40th year of providing homeless survival services! In 1983, our founders, Chris and Dan Delany, (pictured to the right) opened a small dining room to feed hungry people. When Chris recalls those early days, she says, "I have always thought of Loaves & Fishes as miraculous. When we started, Dan and I didn't know how it would grow but people came to help and the guests were always fed. It was a miracle every day!" 

Over the course of the year, we will be telling stories of our 40 years of daily miracles. Follow us on social media and/or sign up for our newsletter at the bottom of this page to learn more!
