"Loaves & Fishes has been in town since 1984, serving meals to the hungry every day. With a mission statement of "Feed the Hungry, Empower the Weak and Nourish the Soul," the all-volunteer organization operates as a soup kitchen, but the dream is to grow into a full-service facility expanding its mission to help the homeless find stable living situations. 

"We feed hundreds of people every month," said Loaves & Fishes President Lisa Martin. "Not just the homeless, but also low-income families, the working poor, of which there are more than you know. There's too much month at the end of the money."

Martin said the organization is working with the town's zoning department on a plan to move Loaves & Fishes to Bridge Street because the space they've occupied in the Richmond building for 25 years is needed by the town.

"After about 25 years, I can understand that they'd need the space," Martin said. "We've found the perfect site at 25 Bridge St. It's local enough that the people who've been coming to Loaves & Fishes can still get to it, but the location is out of sight enough that it'll be out of mind for the people that don't want to know about it." - Danbury News-Times

 

In September 2014, the Roxbury Congregational Church held its' annual Beef Barbecue and committed all of its proceeds to Loaves and Fishes. Over $3000 was donated to them.
