1% for Good Charitable Foundation: Pajaro Valley Loaves and Fishes

Sereno 1% For Good Charitable Foundation believes in combating food insecurity. We are honored to support Pajaro Valley Loaves and Fishes.

Founded in 1989, Loaves and Fishes is a community-based organization dedicated to alleviating hunger among working poor families, farm workers, and elderly, disabled and homeless individuals of the Pajaro Valley. They help sustain the lives of thousands of individuals by assisting them with nutritious food, education and referrals in cooperation with other agencies.

We envision a Pajaro Valley community in which all people have access to healthy food and the other basic necessities of life. We are committed to working collaboratively to develop a healthier, more food-secure community through direct service and advocacy. Each day we manifest the values of service, compassion and justice in our work.”

 

Per their application, “Our greatest impact is our ability to adjust to needs of the community. In addition to daily on-site services Loaves and Fishes has helped provide emergency food in emergency situations, most recently the flood evacuees at the fairgrounds. Our small staff of four prepared an extra 1,500 meals in one week. We collaborate with other organizations like Community action board by providing lunches for the Watsonville Work crew. A program to help homeless individuals gain work skills and employment.”
