The Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry

at the Ada Jenkins Center

Covid-19 Announcement

IN AN EFFORT TO REDUCE CLOSE PERSONAL CONTACT, LOAVES & FISHES HAS MADE THE DECISION TO TEMPORARILY HOLD ONCE-A-WEEK MOBILE FOOD PANTRIES AT EACH OF ITS LOCATIONS. 

As always, you will receive a week’s worth of nutritionally balanced groceries from all five food groups.

Weekly pickup occurs as a drive-through in our Food Pantry parking lot, on Wednesdays from 12:30-2:00pm. Referrals are still required; click here for more information.

“We are working on transition plans for returning to client-choice shopping inside our pantry, and we’ll share further details as soon as they are available.

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.
