The Danny Straub Community Outreach Center
As you may have heard, Loaves and Fishes is preparing to move for the first time in many, many years. In July of 2015 we completed a lengthy, successful (and very expensive) zoning process. We have acquired a site on Bridge Street that is appropriately located and convenient for most of our guests. Our new facility will allow Loaves and Fishes to go far beyond being the local soup kitchen. Guest Services will be expanded providing your neighbors, our friends, the compassion and dignity they deserve.
Laundry and showers, a community resource room to help guests make positive life changing transitions, as well as community educational programs and services aimed at understanding and addressing pressing social justice issues are all made possible with our new home.
Loaves and Fishes has always been the heartbeat of daily compassion flowing in our community. Our volunteer staff of dedicated individuals come from over twenty different Church affiliations from all over the greater New Milford area. We have been open 365 days per year, every day of every year, since 1984 thanks to the widespread sharing and caring of our dedicated and faithful volunteers. They truly experience the joy of giving. They help create the caring community we all enjoy with their hot meals, warm smiles and tender hearts. We all have a vital role to play in the care of our most vulnerable citizens. Your role can start today by donating and helping to build our new home. Your generous donation will allow Loaves and Fishes to continue to serve our most vulnerable neighbors for decades to come. Daily meals served with compassion. Tastes great!
