Loaves & Fishes Program

In 2012, realizing the need for food and/or meal assistance for families and individuals of Stone County during the winter months of January through March (due to the seasonal job market), a decision was made to begin working on a Loaves & Fishes project specifically for Stone County.

Meeting with the leadership that developed the Loaves & Fishes project in Taney County 10 years ago, we learned that our first step was to approach the churches within the Stone County area to see how many would be willing to host the event with hope of fulfilling each night of the calendar during the months of definite need — the winter.

Their next step was to encourage groups within the church and community to host one night a week for the duration. The goal was to offer a hot meal and fellowship seven nights a week, every week, beginning the first Monday of January through the final Saturday/Sunday of March or the first of April.

The program's first year was an extreme success and has maintained strong support into our 2017 kick-off celebrating four years of offering families in the Stone County neighborhoods the opportunity to come and share a hot meal six nights a week between January 3 and March 26.

Love INC considers it quite an honor to be a part of this outreach to our Stone County neighbors, especially during a time of year that can offer an extreme challenge to their grocery budget.


FREE hot meals will be served ~ 7 days a week ~ January 3rd through March 26th 5:30-7:00 at the following locations:

Monday: St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church
30 James River Rd. Kimberling City

The only exception is if Reeds Spring Schools are closed due to weather as there will be no meals served on those nights.
