Loaves & Fishes provides a week's worth of nutritionally balanced groceries to individuals and families in a short-term crisis through a network of 31 emergency food pantries located throughout Mecklenburg County. Loaves & Fishes uses a Client Choice model which allows clients to select groceries their family is most likely to eat. Clients are able to choose a specified number of items in the areas of grains, proteins, vegetables, fruit, and dairy based on the size of the family. The number of choices is determined by a Registered Dietician to ensure that enough food is available to create three meals a day for a week. It is important to the dignity of our clients to feel they have some control and requires them to invest some time in the process. It also allows for greater interaction between clients and volunteers.
