Who are we?
In the spring of 2021, about 60lbs of meat was donated to Daystar Church and the majority of it was donated to a family in need. The remaining 10lbs became the seed that resulted in our first event in April 2021 where we made 60 meals. Our second event followed in December 2021 where we made 170 meals. The third event provided more than 1,000 meals to families in need and the homeless in our area.
In addition, we provided meals for people and families in our congregation who are facing life interruption or difficulties like bereavement or illness.
Five Loaves is an "outreach and inreach" ministry of the grace and love of God through food!
Our vision and mission:
We spread God's love by way of food.
i. We provide opportunity for people to put their faith into action.
ii. We prepare food in the Daystar kitchen as well as individual homes with the help of volunteers.
iii. We distribute food to those in need.

”But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your works, and I will show you my faith by my works”
