Five Loaves & Two Fish

Are you a member of an organization, business, or club seeking to make a positive impact in your community? Our Five Loaves and Two Fish Initiative is a special program aimed at addressing the food pantry requirements of Sojourner Truth House. By participating, you and your organization can actively contribute to the community.

Sojourner Truth House’s Food Pantry caters to the needs of approximately 700-1000 families each month. As a result, the demand for supplies is higher than ever before, and the pantry is facing the challenge of depleting resources rapidly.

Currently, the most urgent needs include:

  • Canned fruit
  • Canned meat (tuna, chicken, salmon, etc.)
  • Canned pasta
  • Canned vegetables
  • Cereal
  • Hamburger helper
  • Jelly (no peanut butter)
  • Macaroni & cheese
  • Oatmeal
  • Pancake mix & syrup
  • Pasta
  • Pork & beans
  • Rice
  • Soup
  • Spaghetti sauce
