Fishes & Loaves is run primarily by our generous volunteers. As demand for our services rise, we require more individuals to offer their time and talent to help our neighbors receive the food they need. Volunteers in any capacity can come on an as-needed basis or choose a day of the week to help out.

If you or a group of individuals are interested in volunteering, please contact us at or call  412-499-4313.

Volunteers can help us in several capacities:



Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Every morning, our chef and assistants prepare bagged lunches and hot dinners for over 60 clients in our Meals on Wheels program. 

Our kitchen is located at the Spartan Community Center.

Meal delivery driver

 Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Our Meals on Wheels program requires two drivers each day to drive to our clients’ homes on each delivery route. Those volunteering as drivers must use their own vehicles.

Drivers report to the Spartan Community Center gymnasium.


Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Meal delivery runners accompany our Meals on Wheels’ drivers and take meals directly to our clients’ front doors.  They also perform quick safety and wellness checks at each home.

Runners report to the Spartan Community Center gymnasium.

Congregate lunch assistant

Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Our congregate lunches are hosted and by our friendly volunteers who prep, serve and clean up lunches for our community and well as engaging with consumers.

Our lunches take place at St. Stephen’s Pastoral Center.
