Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen
How it works
Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen provides free meals Monday through Friday at Goodwill Industries and the San Jose Vietnamese Seventh Day Adventist Church. The organization also partners with 79 nonprofit agencies from as far south as Gilroy to as far north as Palo Alto in California to provide free hot meals to their guests. Since 2014, Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen has steadily increased and streamlined its services to support the increasing number of residents needing nutritious meals and support services — including on major holidays. It partners with 55 nonprofits at 79 locations throughout Santa Clara and San Mateo counties to provide meals at low-income senior retirement centers, community centers, schools, shelters, transitional housing and after school programs.
The goal is to continue the program to scale as the demand increases — because no family should have to worry about putting food on the table.
Loaves & Fishes Family Kitchen provides free meals to low-income families, seniors, veterans, students, the disabled and homeless who struggle with food insecurity.
