The work of Five Loaves Food and Clothing is accomplished through five programs: Five Loaves Food Shelf, Two Fish Thrift Store, Home Deliveries to Seniors, Community Outreach Meal for Everyone (COME) and the Happy Kids Backpack Program. These programs help us meet our mission to collect and distribute food, clothing and other appropriate items to people residing within the New Richmond School District.
Five Loaves has sustained itself for over 30 years as a result of the work and support of local volunteers who believe in giving back to their community by caring for family, friends and neighbors in need of help. Due to the current economic climate due to inflation and COVID-19, we are giving more food to more clients on a weekly basis.
In 2022, we gave out over 180,000 pounds of food to over 3100 households in the New Richmond area, a 25% increase from 2021.
Every dollar donated can buy up to $7 of food. A $10 donation = $70 of food.
Please help us reach our goal of $5000 which will provide our food pantry with three months of food.
Your support is providing a help up, not a hand out.
