Teams are requested to assist Loaves & Fishes Ministry with collection/purchase of non-perishable food items and hygiene products for distribution from their pantry. This will be used to prepare and distribute upwards of 150 boxes of groceries per month. A detailed list of food items and hygiene products may be found on their web site ( www.loavesandfishesmin.org ).
Teams are also requested to help with repairs to and finishing an addition to our Little House Ministry House, finishing the renovation of our Red Door House Mission House, and some repair work on our residence. All homes are next to each other in Lynch, Ky. A current list of all ministry projects is listed on our website project page (www.loavesandfishesmin.org/Project-Page.html ).
