  • Gift Card (McDonalds, Target, Safeway, etc.) for guest emergency services
  • One set of stretch/knit hat and gloves
  • Disposable razors
  • A pair of shoelaces
  • Chapstick
  • Toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Hand Sanitizer

March for the homeless!

No Government Funds

Loaves & Fishes does not accept government funds. This means your support is vital. You keep the work of feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless going.

By accepting no government funds we're able to operate in a way that serves those in need the best and not just what suites the politicians. We are free to be a voice for homeless men, women, and children and when necessary stand up to government officials without fear of losing our funding.

Your support is essential! When the entire Sacramento community comes together we can do incredible things.
