I have been going to loaves and fishes off and on when I am in need and they are really awesome.To put in time to feed the homeless and care really means a lot and shows gratitude. People don't want to be homeless and down in a rut like that but things happen sometime that we have no control over and the Staff and volunteers at Loaves and Fishes understand and accept ones needs and I am so thankful to have them..Thanks to Leslie Ramon and the staff and volunteers..God bless.

I have come here on two occasions to receive food for my family during these hard times. Each time the process has been extremely smooth sailing and efficient, allowing the most people to be helped with a small amount of resources. The staff and volunteers at Loaves and Fishes are obviously knowledgeable and hard working people who know how to run a non profit to allow. In addition to their efficiency, the compassion that is shown by all is truly heartwarming. I have overheard staff speaking to guests here with obvious familiarity and warmth, and they are so willing to go the extra mile to ensure that the patrons of Loaves and Fishes are able to get what they need. Small things like making sure I was able to carry my box outside and into my car and holding the door really make the difference. As someone who works in the non profit sector myself, I can say that this is an essential organization that is doing so much good. I feel blessed that the Mississippi Gulf Coast has Loaves and Fishes to serve the most vulnerable.

Loaves and Fishes serves our community with love, providing a nutritious meal and caring concern for anyone in need, while preserving the dignity of the recipients of their kindness. They serve two hot meals daily to anyone who walks in and give over 100 families boxed groceries consisting of staples such as milk, bread, and pizza every Thursday. The Mississippi Gulf Coast is fortunate to have such selfless, caring individuals who support and volunteer for this phenomenal organization!

We work here for two months in the winter and enjoy the work they so for the Biloxi Mississippi area. They reach not only to the homeless but to anyone who is hungry. This a great non profit organization.

I am Fr. Gregory Barras and have worked at Loaves and Fishes for several years. I thought when I went to volunteer, I was giving. What happened is that I received way more than I gave. To encounter whole families coming in to eat. People in need of medical care and shelter being resourced to find these essential human needs opened my eyes to the the significant population that exists who are silent and unseen. I walked away with a heart full of gratitude that I can serve and that I am well off with what I have. My conscience was raised to the moral reality to which there is a solution. Willingness to be aware, this is real. Fr. Greg

I volunteer regularly and can honestly say the love is tangible. Volunteers selflessly give their time and resources to help those in need, which has inspired me to do the same. I hope we can continue to work together to feed our community. God bless!
