Build Today Feed Tomorrow Capital Campaign

We are very excited about our new facility and the opportunities it provides for us to better nourish the low-income families in our community! Our new "Client Choice" model that simulates a grocery store setting allows clients more selection in the food they receive and reduces food waste.

Build Today, Feed Tomorrow

Our capital campaign, Build Today, Feed Tomorrow. was launched in early 2015 to help us raise the $1.2 million needed to pay for the building and renovations.

What We Do

Loaves & Fishes provides groceries at no cost to low-income families within and around the Charlottesville community. We are always in need of volunteers and food/money donations to continue to serve the hungry in our community. Loaves & Fishes is able to purchase food at greatly discounted prices, so your monetary contributions go further with us than food donations, but we are very grateful to receive either. We are a tax-exempt organization and donations are tax deductible.

Our Mission

To give food with kindness and compassion to those seeking assistance while providing an opportunity for volunteers to serve their neighbors in Charlottesville and surrounding communities.

We are neighbors nourishing neighbors.
