5 Loaves 2 Fish Kitchen


Food of the Month: January

We would really appreciate bags of granulated or brown sugar, raisins, and boxes of Jell-O

If your New Year's resolution is to do some meaningful volunteer work this year, while having fun with your church family, stop by our Kitchen downstairs on a Thursday or Friday morning. You can either contact Duane Hanson ahead of time by emailing Kitchen@goodshepluth.org or just stop by about 9:00am on one of those mornings. Ring the doorbell if the door is locked.

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.


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.


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. Cooking volunteers are needed every week at 9:30 a.m. Thursday and Friday. If you are able to volunteer, please contact

Duane Hanson through our email at kitchen@goodshepluth.org.

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.
