We usually have 125 people over to our place for dinner!
Loaves and Fishes of Door County, Inc. provides hot meals to hungry families. Countless volunteers, led by a professional chef, cook and serve delicious meals to our neighbors that are struggling to make ends meet.
Meals are normally served on the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Fridays
of the month in the commons area of the NWTC campus in Sturgeon Bay. While NWTC generously donates the space and use of its kitchen, the government provides absolutely no financial support for the meals themselves. That's why we need support from generous donors like you.
Over 40,000 meals have been served
since the program began in 2003. While our guests don't pay anything for their meal, it costs us just $3.45 per person to produce each meal.
More than 6,000 hours of donated labor
is what makes Loaves and Fishes such a remarkably good charitable investment. Our volunteers range from age 15 to more than 80 years old. If you'd like to volunteer, contact:
Jan Evers, Volunteer Coordinator, (920) 493-4142
