Loaves and Fishes was started in 1982 by Betty Anne Ford and Nancy Newell, two members of CUCC, as an after-school program for children living in subsidized housing in downtown Raleigh. Today, LAF serves 53 children from 31 families. LAF’s mission is accomplished through out-of-school programming such as homework assistance, mentoring providing healthy snacks to supplement frequently inadequate nutrition, life skills and workplace readiness training, exercise, field trips and other experiential learning activities.
The schedule for the Sunday’s activities:
Sunday School and Youth Church School: 11:00am – CUCC students and, if available, LAF students will have activities during Sunday School that highlight social and economic justice issues.
Chili luncheon for CUCC and LAF members: Noon - During lunch, Joe Burmester will explain their work, as well as CUCC’s long-time commitment and involvement with the program. The chili will be provided by the Economic Justice Ministry.
