Enfield Loaves and Fishes is a soup kitchen providing meals, aid, and companionship at no charge. We are located in Enfield, Connecticut and serve anyone in need in the surrounding area. A non-profit 501(c) (3) organization, incorporated in 1982, our purpose is to feed and aid the disenfranchised.
Enfield Loaves and Fishes strives to make a difference in the life of people who live with food insecurity. We serve every meal with dignity and respect in a nurturing environment. Our volunteers, Board of Directors, and staff strive to make positive difference in our community and in the world, and the strength of the organization rests on their shoulders.
There is no single face of food insecurity. It impacts every community in the United States.
Food insecurity is a complex problem. Though closely related to poverty, not all people living below the poverty line experience food insecurity. Low-income families are affected by multiple, overlapping issues like lack of affordable housing, social isolation, chronic or acute health problems, high medical costs, and low wages. We are so very fortunate to have many dedicated, caring people who come together every single day to help serve a hot meal to anyone that is hungry.
