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 Milner Memorial Presbyterian Church on New Bern Avenue in Southeast Raleigh, NC.
