Loaves and Fishes is a state-wide non-profit organization whose mission is to provide healthy meals to Minnesotans in areas where need is greatest. You can learn more about this organization by clicking here: Loaves and Fishes - Meals. Comfort. Kindness. (loavesandfishesmn.org)
Faith Covenant Church, located at 12921 Nicollet Ave, Burnsville, MN 55337, operates as a Loaves and Fishes site every Wednesday. They provide curbside meals to anyone who comes between 5:30-6:30pm! Beginning in January 2024, Risen Savior has committed to staffing their volunteer needs on the 1st Wednesday of each month. Since spring 2023, Risen Savior has provided financial support to this program in recognition of the need it is filling in our community.
