Loaves and Fishes


Join us on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 2123 Clinton Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55404. (the northeast corner across the street from the church in the lower level).

We welcome all who have time to volunteer. We start preparing the dinner at 4:30 PM, or please be there no later than 5:00 PM to be assigned an area. We serve dinner between 5:30 and 6:30 PM. If you can, plan to stay to clean up. We are usually done by 7:00 PM.
