Loaves and Fishes serves free, healthy meals to Minnesotans in areas where the need is greatest. We offer a variety of meal programs at more than 90 outlets including: public dining, street outreach, student meals and snacks, free produce markets, and a new HUB program for small organizations. We grow fresh produce at our own local farm and gardens and rescue leftover, nutritious food from schools, organizations and businesses. We are always guided by our vision that all people, regardless of socioeconomic, cultural, religious or ethnic background, deserve to meet their basic needs for food, dignity and respect. We served a record-breaking one million meals in 2018 and expect to serve 1.3 million healthy meals to food insecure Minnesotans in 2019.

Right from the start, in the early 1950s, House of Charity has been about transforming lives…one person at a time. Our founder, Brother de Paul, responded to the need he saw around him by providing food and shelter to the poor in Minneapolis. Since its beginnings on Nicollet Island, House of Charity has been located at several sites in downtown Minneapolis, and moved to its current location at 510 South 8th Street in 1976. Once a hotel, the building now houses 116 men and women who have experienced homelessness.
