Loaves and Fishes Ministry
Our Drive-thru Pantry DISTRIBUTION HOURS are from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm on Wednesdays!
The Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry at our church was established so that we can provide assistance with food for families who are having a difficult time financially and who may not know where their next meal is coming from.
We have a deep desire to show the love of Jesus Christ through this ministry because God commands His people to “pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted” (Isaiah 58:10) and because Jesus Himself miraculously fed the crowds who went to hear Him preach with a few loaves and fish (Matthew 14:13-21).
We are a partner agency with the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. Their website can be found by clicking here.
If you would like to donate food to our ministry, it may be dropped off at the church. If you would like to donate money to support our food ministry, you can send it to the church address (4397 Wishart Road, Virginia Beach, VA 23455). If you would like to volunteer, please call us at 757-464-0371. All contributions are deeply appreciated!
