From the Executive Director’s Desk

Finally, terra firma.

Perhaps like me you have spent the last three years feeling as if the ground beneath your feet was constantly shifting – each day a barrage of new information and critical decisions to make. As 2023 begins, I am struck by the unusual sensation of terra firma.

Now the ground feels much more solid under my feet. I can see clearly where we have been and where we are going – and, in a word, I am inspired.

The pandemic put our beloved Loaves & Fishes to the test. Could we meet the changing needs of our food donors, partner agencies and people they serve? In the face of each challenge the answer was a resounding “yes!” Our incredible staff and dedicated volunteers never wavered.

But what I hope you understand is that we could not have weathered this storm without your support. You are an integral part of our success. I hope you will savor every statistic in this report and feel the same pride I feel in our accomplishments.

We couldn’t fulfill our mission without your generosity. As you can see below, your gifts are essential to our operation and sustain us year-round. Thank you for sharing your resources and values with us.
