Food of the Month: April

We would like to request that olive oil be placed in the bucket in the Narthex. We would also be happy to receive margarine or butter. Commercially wrapped game meat or fish is always welcome in the kitchen and will be much appreciated.

What do we do?

Five Loaves Two Fish Kitchen prepares and delivers 200 meals per week to places around the Mat-Su Valley in need of food. We prepare food for My House Homeless Teens Resource Center, Knik House, Family Promise, Next Step and many others. Our goal is to provide food for hungry people.

History

In 2014 the kitchen ministries of Five Loaves Two Fish was initially made possible by a construction and equipment grant from Mat-Su Health Foundation. Good Shepherd members donated in-kind labor and donated to furnish the utensils and small equipment.

Volunteers

The success of the kitchen mission is due to the devotion of many volunteers. Success would not be possible without the people who help with cooking and administering the 10,000 meals that were prepared in the first two years.

Commercially wrapped game meat or fish is always welcome in the kitchen and will be much appreciated. We can only use it, though, if it has been processed and wrapped commercially, according to DEC regulations. If you are planning to bring in margarine, butter, game meat or fish, please notify the office in advance to allow the Kitchen staff to receive and refrigerate them.
