Guiding Principles of Loaves and Fishes
Daily feeding of those in need is on Monday through Friday at 9:00 AM. With the blessing of Metropolitan Alexios, Metropolitan of the Greek Atlanta Diocese, all the Orthodox churches in Atlanta take part in making the Loaves & Fishes program a successful outreach to those less fortunate.
The Orthodox Churches supply our program with canned goods, left over catering items, money, and volunteers. We feed those in need hot, nutritious meals, and maintain a pantry for families and individuals with access to a kitchen.
Matthew 25:35: For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and
you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I
needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I
was in prison and you came to visit me.’
1) 25:35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and
you gave me something to drink,
This is the basis of the Loaves and Fishes feeding program, the Hungry and Thirsty we
feed M-F Breakfast to as many as 60 homeless and poor per day.
2) I was a stranger and you invited me in,
We formerly fed on the patio, we now invite the clients into the same hall our
congregation uses for our meals (our home).
3) 25:36 I needed clothes and you clothed me,
We maintain a Clothing Barrel with clothes and shoes for the clients.
4) I was sick and you looked after me,
We have partnered with St Joseph’s Mercy Care, Grady, and Good Samaritan to
provide Mental, Dental, and Medical care as well as GCAL for suicidal clients.
5) I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
We have a prison Ministry manned by Father Chris and Dennis Dunn that visits the
jails and prisons.
25:40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least
of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
For the Glory of Christ, we care for the Poor and Homeless.
