The Ada Jenkins Food Pantry, a partner of Loaves and Fishes, allows for client-partners to shop for their own groceries based on a nutritionally balanced shopping list provided by Loaves & Fishes. The shopping list indicates how many items one may choose in each food category. Volunteers assist and help identify how many items from a category a client-partner may take.
Client-partners are eligible to receive food 8 times per year. A referral is required. Referrals must be called in to Loaves & Fishes Administrative Office at 704-523-4333. The office will let you know when and where to pick up your food.
Contact one of the following to make a referral for you to Loaves & Fishes:
- Church Pastor or local clergy
- Doctor’s office or other medical provider
- School Counselor / Social Worker
- Department of Social Services, Salvation Army, Goodwill
- Your Ada Jenkins Coordinated Services Specialists or appropriate staff contact
A photo ID is required to complete a referral application. If picking up for another person, a signed letter stating permission to pick up is required.
