4. Loaves and Fishes
Address: 1321 North C Street
City: Sacramento State: CA Zip: 958144
Contact's Position: Volunteer Coordinator
Hours: M-F 8:30-4:30pm
Descriptions: Loaves and Fishes is a charitable, non-profit, inter-faith, ecumenical organization dedicated to feeding the hungry and sheltering the homeless.
More than 1,000 volunteers from the Sacramento region come to Loaves & Fishes during the course of a month to help feed the hungry and shelter the homeless. Because of the amount of hands-on labor needed to prepare, cook, and serve a daily noontime meal sufficiently large to feed more than 500 hungry people, most of the volunteers work in the Dining Room. Some other volunteer opportunities are on our Thank You letter Committe, teachers assistant at Mustard Seed School, or helping at the service desk in Friendship Park. Some volunteers sign up for one day-a-month, some every week, and some just once a year.
Orientation and tours are available every Thursday and the first Saturday of each month by appointment. New volunteers, inquiring minds, and students doing papers are invited.
