About Us

Fishes and Loaves Pantry is a part of Faith Tabernacle Outreach Ministry. Following the Biblical principle that you are your brother's keeper, Faith Tabernacle embraces the slogan, "Have a heart, lend a hand" to help feed the needy during these economically challenging times.

The pantry began operating in January 2010, and in six months we served over 2,000 people. From the beginning, we have been a "pantry of choice", allowing our clients to select their own items from our shelves.

Most pantries offer food and sometimes even clothing, but Fishes and Loaves Pantry offers a greater variety of products, such as household goods, toiletries, laundry supplies, health and beauty products, and infant/toddler food and essentials. All of this is in addition to a wide selection of perishable and nonperishable foods.

Fishes and Loaves Pantry operates under the guidelines of three programs:
    • Baltimore City Department of Social Services Emergency Food Assistance
    • United States Department of Agriculture Emergency Food Assistance
    • Faith Tabernacle Fishes and Loaves Pantry

Fishes and Loaves Pantry publishes a quarterly newsletter highlighting special events, successes, and expansion progress.

Since Fishes & Loaves opened theirs doors January 4, 2010, below is the 1st year totals:
Fishes and Loaves Pantry fed 7671 people. The pantry distributed 15,000 bags of food.
