Loaves and Fishes

Serving the community since 2013

“Taking the five loaves and two fishes,” Jesus fed “about five thousand men, besides women and children.”  Matthew 14:18-21

Loaves and Fishes Pantry

Our pantry is open Monday –  Thursday, 10:00 am to 2:00 pm

(by appointment only) to provide food to those in need.

Loaves and Fishes Community Meal and Food Distribution

 The community meal has been suspended during COVID-19.

We distribute food boxes (dairy, produce, and shelf stable foods) provided by

Baltimore County on the third Saturday of each month.


“I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.”  Mathew 25:34


Volunteers are the “engine” of this ministry. Volunteers pack and distribute groceries, prepare and distribute meals, and help clean up. Complete the contact form or email or call the church if you are interested in volunteering. Students needing community service hours are always welcome.

Monetary Donations

We partner with the Maryland Food Bank to purchase most of the food for the lowest possible price. Your monetary donation allows us to buy much more than we could at a retail store.  You may donate online or by mailing a check to the church. If you donate by check, make payable to Mount Olive UMC and indicate “Loaves and Fishes” on the notation line.


We sincerely thank you for your support of this vital ministry.
