Loaves & Fishes

CONTACT: Kate Thornton

Loaves and Fishes (L&F) has been serving hot meals to those in need throughout seven counties in Minnesota since 1982. St. Stephen’s has served with L&F for many years and hope to continue to do so for many more.

We serve meals to hungry neighbors at Woodlake Lutheran in Richfield. The Woodlake Lutheran site comes with several benefits that make service a snap. The site provides a professional chef and all the food.  When parishioners arrive, a menu is already planned and the food is set out.  We just roll up our sleeves and get to work serving in the kitchen or dining room.

Three generations in service together:  Annie & Mike Listiak, with son Sam and Annie’s mother Myrna.

We’d love to welcome your family into service with this ministry – it’s a great way to serve together as a family. One of our youngest volunteers, Javi, loved it, exclaiming, “Feeding people feels good!  Also, it’s like God touches you; you actually get to know Him somehow by serving.

Kids as young as age 7 are welcome to help – especially with the evening shift.
