St. Joseph Church - Loaves and Fishes/Panes y Peces
Santa Ana, CA 92701
Details: Almost every Saturday for the past 27 years, the ancient miracle of the “multiplication of the loaves and fishes” is being re-enacted right here at St. Joseph parish! Though Loaves & Fishes soup kitchen was originally begun in 1986 by a handful of St. Joseph parishioners, today volunteers from throughout Orange County make the kitchen hum and bubble as they serve delicious meals and a healthy dose of friendship to as many as 800-900 homeless or needy men, women and children. Over the years L&F has grown from a humble soup kitchen to a sort of multi-faceted community center, offering everything from medical care, bags of groceries, haircuts, children’s crafts and activities, and English classes – all at no charge to our “guests.” Our motto “a guest comes, Christ comes” sets the bar high for hospitality, as we strive to recognize him in the “least of our brothers and sisters.”

Santa Ana, CA 92703
