Hunger in Greenville
Childhood hunger is a real issue in Greenville County. 49.5% of our children are eligible for free or reduced lunches.
1 in 4 children under 5 years old are living in poverty.
To date in 2013 Loaves & Fishes has provided food for over 8,000 children in need and over 165,000 other individuals.

"I wanted to thank you again for letting us receive from Loaves & Fishes, we are truly very appreciative. I wanted to tell you a little bit about the need in this community and a few of the people that we have been able to bless.
Miss Jean in her 80's , never married and no family, with her home in disrepair; Kelly, her and her husband just lost custody of their children due to the poor condition of their mobile home.
Thank you, I just wanted to let you know everything received from Loaves & Fishes goes to a hungry person."
