Loaves & Fishes
Salem serves a meal for the FDL Loaves and Fishes program four times a year. The need for a hot, nutritious meal is high in the FDL area. In 2013, we served 1,069 meals of Salisbury steaks, mashed potatoes and gravy, vegetables, bread, and pudding in only four serving dates!
We have several faithful volunteers in place that prepare for our serving each time. They come to Salem in the afternoon on the serving day to package the bread. Others begin to prepare the meal on site at the Church of Peace and box the carryout meals for pickup. The sit down meal is then served for those who wish to eat in. We are very lucky to have volunteers to pick up the meat, prepare the food at Salem, and volunteers to oversee the many, many onsite workers.
