The Loaves and Fishes ministry provides informal opportunities for the people of All Souls to gather in small groups around a shared meal. Loaves and Fishes hosts open their homes and provide a main course. All are welcome to these meals and are asked to bring a contribution to the meal if possible. We strongly encourage you to sign-up so that the hosts will have a sense of how many people to expect. If you need directions or other information about a specific meal, please contact the Loaves and Fishes host indicated.
For more information about the Loaves and Fishes Ministry and to sign up as a Loaves and Fishes host, please contact Caroline McCall at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Potentially Asked Questions
Q: What exactly is Loaves & Fishes?
A: Loaves & Fishes is a way to connect with All Souls community in a smaller, more intimate group by sharing meals together in parishioners’ homes.
Q: There are several meals that say they’re vegetarian or gluten free. What does that mean exactly?
A: The hope is that all meals will be as hospitable to as many people as possible so in an effort to accommodate different dietary needs the hosts who will provide vegetarian/or gluten free main dish options have indicated this on the calendar. This does not mean that the only foods available at these meals will be vegetarian or gluten free or that you can’t bring a dish to share that is meat and gluten full. On the flip side, if you are a vegetarian or gluten-free please do feel free to prepare a dish you can eat and come to a meal, even if it isn’t specifically designated as a vegetarian or gluten free option. ALL are welcome to ALL meals!
Q: What if I’m a newcomer? Can I still go to a meal or two or all of them?
A: Please join in the fun and fellowship! This is meant to be a way for everyone to connect, from those who have only been here for one Sunday to those who have been here for countless Sundays. ALL are welcome to ALL meals!
Q: Do I need to bring anything?
A: The hosts will provide the main dish(es). If you are able please do bring a dish to share. If you come to a meal empty-handed you will not be turned away, however, anything you can contribute to make sure there is enough for all is greatly appreciated.
Q: Do I need to sign-up?
A: No, you may just show up at a meal. If you would like to let the host know you are coming you are encouraged to contact them. No matter what, ALL are always welcome.
Q: What do I do if I have questions that are not addressed here?
