Loaves and Fishes,
Community Meals for the Hungry

The number of families that cannot make ends meet each month is increasing, as is the number of homeless individuals who travel through, and stay in Nashville. For the past 25 years, Loaves and Fishes, a community-wide effort enlisting the help of 23 volunteer groups representing many denominations, schools and associations remains committed to serving the growing needs of the hungry in Nashville.

Every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday the Loaves and Fishes program provides a hot midday meal to the hungry and homeless in East Nashville without restriction of religion, race or proof of need. Each week approximately 600 meals are served in a caring environment. At Loaves and Fishes the people who come to eat around the tables are our guests. Guests of the program are also provided referral to appropriate services for housing, additional food, and clothing, within the community.

The program operates in the Parish Center of Holy Name Catholic Church, located behind the church at 508 Main Street (map).
