Enfield Loaves and Fishes Needs YOUR Help!

Who We Are

Enfield Loaves and Fishes is a soup kitchen providing meals, aid, and companionship at no charge. We are located in Enfield, Connecticut and serve anyone in need in the surrounding area. A non-profit 501(c) (3) organization, incorporated in 1983, our purpose is to feed and aid the disenfranchised.

Enfield Loaves and Fishes strives to make a difference in the life of people who live with food insecurity. We serve every meal with dignity and respect in a nurturing environment. Our volunteers, Board of Directors and staff strive to make positive difference in our community and in the world, and the strength of the organization rests on their shoulders.

There is no single face of food insecurity. It impacts every community in the United States. Food insecurity is a complex problem. Though closely related to poverty, not all people living below the poverty line experience food insecurity. Low-income families are affected by multiple, overlapping issues like lack of affordable housing, social isolation, chronic or acute health problems, high medical costs, and low wages. We are so very fortunate to have many dedicated, caring people who come together every single day to help serve a hot meal to anyone that is hungry.

As food insecurity continues to rise, so does the cost of food preparation supplies. We must purchase a never-ending supply of products to keep up with demand. Monetary assistance will continue to be greatly needed for the foreseeable future. So many organizations are trying their best to help support our communities and make sure no one is being left behind. Soup kitchens are meeting this call with dedicated volunteers and the generosity of donors like you. We are grateful for anything that you can contribute.

Your donation will help us to:
• Acquire substantially more and better food from a variety of sources to keep up with the steadily increasing need
• Coordinate responses with other community organizations in order to direct those in need to the proper resources
• Continue to keep volunteers, staff and our guests who rely on our services safe from COVID-19
