Five Loaves Outreach is most known for feeding the homeless on the fourth Saturday of every month. We provide a hot lunch and toiletries as well. We will bring blankets, tent and other winter items during the winter months. We have been serving the homeless in the cities of Fort Worth and DALLAS since 2008 under our ministry FIVE LOAVES and TWO FISH MINISTRIES.
In addition to the homeless, we provide school supplies for children living in poverty, as well as assist with parties, provisions for elderly living in nursing homes and mentally challenged adults living in facilities.
Since Covid the homeless population has almost tripled in our area, thus causing a greater need for food, clothing, shelter, daily essentials and mental health resourses.
Meeting the needs:
In our community the homeless and low income population seems to continue to grow for various reasons. Although we do not know what leads someone to be destitute, or poverty we do know that we can bring relief and love as Christ commanded us to do. If you would like to partner with us financially, please donate whether small or large.
"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, 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.’" Matthew 25:35 (NIV)
Fort Worth Five Loaves and Two Fishes' goal is to end homelessness and empower poverty stricken communities to become productive. The organization's existence is for creating unity and peace, by providing food, shelter, clothing, daily essentials and inspiration to every person within our reach.
Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?
For in the day of trouble He will keep me safe in His dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent and set me high upon a rock.
The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken.
