As our community is monitoring the COVID-19 virus development, through the guidance of federal, local government, and health officials, Loaves and Fishes of Union County, NC will remain open to stand by our mission of feeding those in need within our community.
We will make assessments and consider ways to further support our community as needs unfold.

Loaves and Fishes of Union County, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer-based community food pantry program that exists to support local families in crisis.
Loaves and Fishes of Union County, Inc. operates as one of the largest hunger fighting agencies located in Monroe, North Carolina. Food is distributed free of charge to agency certified people of Union County up to three times in a twelve-month period.
We could not do this without community support and a solid set of dedicated volunteers. Volunteers and board members run the pantry, keep client records, raise funds, take responsibility to sort, inspect and pack groceries for distribution to families in crisis.
Loaves and Fishes of Union County, Inc. was founded in 1983. In 1984, incorporated as a volunteer, non-profit, charitable entity and is operated by unpaid volunteers serving Union County in North Carolina.
Loaves and Fishes of Union County, Inc. is grateful to Union County Department of Social Services and Episcopal Diocese of Charlotte for the initial seed grants and the housing arrangement at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Monroe, North Carolina. The pantry space and involvement of key members of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church congregation provided continuity and has kept administrative costs low, allowing more funds to be spent for the purpose of the organization.
Funds and food come to Loaves and Fishes of Union County, Inc. from local individuals, local congregations, civic and church groups, businesses, independent drives and local schools.
