Loaves & Fishes
An independent program that serves an evening meal five days a week in many locations throughout the Twin Cities area, meals are purchased, prepared and served by volunteer teams. Volunteers from St. Edward’s have been serving no-charge, no-obligation meals to the hungry of our community for more than 30 years at the St. Stephen’s Church in Minneapolis and the Creekside Senior Center in Bloomington.
“I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,
I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you invited me in.” – Matthew 25:35
Serving Days & Locations
St. Edward’s Church is responsible for two servings days and locations:
1. St. Stephen’s Church: First Tuesdays (2211 Clinton Ave South, Minneapolis)
2. Creekside Senior Center: Fourth Thursdays (9801 Penn Ave South, Bloomington)
Site coordinators order the food and have it delivered to the serving site. On serving days, there is a team of St. Edward’s volunteers who prepare the meal and another team that serves the meal. Some volunteers serve every month, some serve every other month, and some are on the sub list to call if they are needed.
1. St. Stephen’s Site: Volunteers are needed starting at 3:00pm for food prep, and from 5:00-7:00pm for serving the meal.
2. Creekside Site: Volunteers are needed starting at 2:00pm for food prep, and from 5:00-7:00pm for serving the meal.
Volunteers can connect with a car pool to the serving site or provide their own transportation.
