Proverbs 22:9

Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor.

As a nonprofit, Enfield Loaves and Fishes relies on the assistance of volunteers to help at the soup kitchen. If it were not for our volunteers, Enfield Loaves and Fishes would struggle to feed our neighbors that are experiencing hunger, poverty, and food insecurity. Volunteering just a few hours of your time at Enfield Loaves and Fishes not only enriches our community but will enrich your life! Beyond the good deeds that can be done by volunteering, becoming a volunteer can be valuable for your personal growth and well-being. Spending time as a volunteer has been shown to improve self-esteem and well-being. This can help to fight depression, anxiety, and stress.

According to an article in Forbes Magazine “Research demonstrates that volunteering leads to better health… those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer.”
