Loaves and Fishes Community offers hospitality and advocacy to people experiencing homelessness. We are all volunteers and we depend almost entirely on small gifts of cash and goods to continue our work. Donations are accepted daily from 9am-9pm at 1614 or 1712 Jefferson St, Duluth. If you have questions, call 218-724-2054.  Loaves and Fishes is a people-powered movement for change, we are not a tax-deductible charity.

Monetary donations are needed to support the day to day needs of providing hospitality. Please make checks payable to Loaves & Fishes.
