Loaves & fishes community services
Loaves & Fishes provides food and hope to residents of Naperville and DuPage County whose financial circumstances make it difficult to provide food for themselves and their families. They distribute over 60,000 pounds of groceries each week, and depend on a network of over 1000 volunteers to collect, sort, stock shelves, and assist clients. Loaves & Fishes also partners with local organizations to offer a holistic approach to meet the needs of those they serve offering services in areas such as nutrition, mental health, employment assistance and skills, financial and computer literacy, and language skills.

MOVING UP PROGRAM at Loaves and Fishes
Moving Up is a 16 week course during which Loaves and Fishes clients called investigators learn skills, gain support, and make goals for their lives. They move from “getting by” to “Moving UP.” Alleluia! is a primary sponsor of the Moving Up Program. Mentors are needed to meet with participants on a weekly basis to encourage and support them.
