Fish & Loaves is committed to ensuring food security for our local communities, but the needs of the families and individuals served by the pantry are often broader than food.
To help families and individuals assess and address wider needs, Fish & Loaves has partnered with the Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency to provide an on-site caseworker.
The caseworker is on-site at Fish & Loaves on Wednesdays between 9am-2pm for resource information and referrals. Caseworker services are optional for Fish & Loaves clients and provide helpful referrals as well as assistance with rent, mortgage and utility payments.
To setup an appointment to meet with the Case Worker, please call Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency at 313-388-9799.

GOOD AND CHEAP COOKBOOK - EAT WELL ON $4 PER DAY
Good and Cheap is a gorgeous cookbook for people with limited income, particularly on what for many is a $4/day food stamps budget. The PDF is free and has been downloaded more than 1,000,000 times.
Fish & Loaves welcomes your feedback on the cookbook and please feel free to share with us any pictures of your recipes using the book. I hope it is an asset to our many clients and friends.
