The Loaves and Fishes vision is that all people, regardless of socioeconomic, cultural or ethnic background deserve to meet their basic needs for food, dignity and respect. It is only then that self-esteem and empowerment can move individuals to independence.

Mizpah UCC serves once a month and recently celebrated our 30th year of service in participation with this organization.

Join us the fourth Monday of each month.  For more information, see the Loaves and Fishes site, or email us


Clothes Together

The fourth Tuesday of each month we pay for those in need to do their laundry, including the detergent!  We know that for some members of the community, this is a great help.  It's hard to go to school or get an interview without clean clothes.

Join us (or volunteer or donate!) at MegaWave Coin Laundry in Hopkins.  For more information, email us.
