MFB New England partner serves meals with 'respect and dignity'
Enfield Loaves and Fishes provides that to those who walk in their door. Those doors are open again after the board of volunteers navigated the challenges of feeding the food-insecure during the pandemic.
Late in 2019, Loaves and Fishes moved to a new location, but once the pandemic hit, they couldn't provide in-person meals. However, they again provide 150 meals to mostly transient and homeless people each evening. Since the pandemic, Connecticut's food insecurity has grown an estimated 14 percent.
"We are pleased to be able to support Enfield Loaves and Fishes," says Jan Young, MFB New England Executive Director. "They are incredibly effective in how they reach out to our community through their beautiful restaurant-style setting."
MFB New England is blessed to partner with nonprofit agencies like Enfield Loaves and Fishes.
