Who We Are

About Us

Loaves & Fishes is a ministry of churches located in McHenry County and maintained by volunteers. In partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank, we provide food for needy individuals and families in the McHenry County area. Loaves & Fishes receives no government funding for this ministry, but donations from individuals and groups are gratefully accepted. The central office is located at the Pointe Christian Outreach Center in Crystal Lake.


Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter-- when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? (Isaiah 58:7)  

Our mission is clear - to feed the hungry in McHenry County.

What We Do

Using our established area partnerships and donations we raise funds to purchase food trucks from the Northern Illinois Food Bank.  Trucks loaded with frozen meats and fresh vegetables arrive in strategic locations throughout our region.  Volunteers serve by assisting in food distribution. One truck can provide food for 300 needy families.

How You Can Help

  • Volunteer to serve on our food distribution team
  • Donate funds so Loaves & Fishes can purchase trucks of much needed food
