Loaves & Fishes

Loaves & Fishes & the Food Pantry

Located at the Dominican Sisters' Convent in Sabattus, Maine

Based on the Scripture of Jesus' miraculous multiplication of the loaves and fishes, our group was established to provide assistance to people in crisis.

Loaves & Fishes and the food pantry are headquartered in the Dominican Sisters' convent in Sabattus, ME.  We help all qualified residents of the Sabattus area, regardless of religious affiliation.

The food pantry receives food from the USDA food program, Community Concepts, the Good Shepherd Food Bank, and other local businesses for weekly and emergency distribution.

Thanks to the generosity of so many, Loaves & Fishes has helped people in need since 1997.

  • Loaves & Fishes is made up of a volunteer Board of Directors that is comprised of community members, active and retired business professionals, and recipients of Loaves & Fishes' assistance.
  • Loaves & Fishes' facilities and supplies are all donated by the Dominican Sisters.
  • Loaves & Fishes' recipients do not have to be a member of a religious organization to receive assistance.
  • Loaves & Fishes and the food pantry run because of the hard work of our volunteers along with the money rasied from fundraisers and from generous donations from all over the country.
Fundraisers are ongoing throughout the year and include:
  • Christmas Fairs
  • A Spring Dinner and Raffle Event
  • Bake Sales
  • The 300 Club
  • The January Calendar
  • Garage Sales
  • An on-going Bottle Drive
  • Bingo and Games of Chance
  • Scrapbooking Events
