Enfield Loaves and Fishes, the local area Soup Kitchen, held its Annual Holiday Dinner on Monday, December 19, 2016. We served 455 meals to our guests, followed by a Holiday Party. Many community members turned out to assist in the cooking and serving of a roast beef and ham dinner.

Santa Claus visited after the meal and gave out gifts to over 250 kids who attended. Enfield Loaves & Fishes would like to thank the many residents, churches, organizations, corporations and stores who appeared with a vast array of food and gifts for those attending the celebration.

Enfield Loaves and Fishes wishes to also offer a special appreciation to those who helped all year long and yet wish to remain anonymous. May you be blessed for all you do to help those in need throughout the year. ….You are the light and the hope for our brothers and sisters.

This nonprofit, non-sectarian program has been fighting hunger in the community for 35 years. Last year 128,101 meals were served and of those 45% were to children. The organization is dependent upon donations and volunteer help from individuals, churches, organizations, corporations and local stores in North Central Connecticut. The soup kitchen does not receive subsidies from state or federal government.

We wish you and your family a Happy New Year.
