Reviews for Loaves And Fishes
Loaves and Fishes is a wonderful place to volunteer. They provide a clean safe place six days a week that someone in need of a meal can get one. Using volunteer efforts and donated food they serve nutritious meals to the needy. They distribute food to area organizations that help the needy. This organization has served the community well and will continue it's mission of feeding the hungry.
Great place to volunteer but some of their practices are unhealthy for the patrons they service examples include:
*Volunteers not using gloves while preparing and serving food.
*Serving rotten and or damaged fruits
*Reheating cooked 3x gumbo months after it was prepared
I enjoyed my time serving but was reluctant to say something to their leadership based on their "we are doing them a service mentality".
