Loaves and Fishes Ministry

The mission of Loaves and Fishes is to empower low-income K-12 youth and their families to overcome individual challenges in order to achieve healthier and more fulfilling lives. 

We accomplish this through out-of-school programming using a long-term, relationally-based, holistic approach to development that involves enrichment of the mind, body and spirit.  We strategically collaborate with schools, non-profits and other community organizations to provide critical support to the youth and families we serve. Loaves and Fishes currently serves up to 60 kindergarten through 12th grade students in a comprehensive after-school program located at Mount Peace Baptist Church on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Southeast Raleigh, NC.

LAF Lines Newsletter:

April 2020:  Given all the turmoil caused by COVID-19, we have not decided how to celebrate with our annual Lifting Minds and Hearts breakfast and fundraising event. As we review our options and determine the most responsible approach, we will notify our supporters through this website and other meals, including our Facebook page. Thanks for your continued interest and support!

March 2020:
  Thanks to everyone who participated in Loaves and Fishes Valentine Challenge - we were able to meet our target and have achieved our matching grant of $5,000! 

2020:  Our annual Chili Sale is in its final stages - if you didn't have the opportunity to place an order through our "sales" team or through our Facebook page, we still have a few quarts of our delicious Veggie Chili available.  Send an email to Joe Burmester at [email protected] to arrange for a pickup or delivery.  It was a blast for our team, led this year by Gerry Rogers, to cook nearly 500 quarts of chili for your pleasure and to support our program - THANK YOU!
