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 News:
October 14, 2017:  What a great day for a hay ride and games, picking out a pumpkin, and meeting new people! A wonderful group of friends from the Church on Morgan hosted kids and staff from LAF to an outing at Page Farms! We all got to pick our own pumpkins, tromp through the corn maze and jump in the corn pit! Thanks to all - we are looking forward tour next adventure together!

September 5, 2017: Today we welcomed 35 students to begin our after school activities in our new home! Many of these youth have been part of our program in the past, but we are excited to welcome new students as well. We have an exciting year planned to help our students academically and experience new adventures as they grow in mind, body and spirit!

August 22, 2017:  Wow! What a beginning to our year of awesome activities! Our full program starts on September 5, but today we invited more than 40 of our prospective students and parents to join us for a "round-up"at the Hope Reins Farm! We enjoyed meeting the horses, fishing, seeing the garden, playing games and understanding how the stories of these rescued horses are so much like our own experiences!  Thanks to the Hope Reins staff for a wonderful adventure!
