Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry and Hyatt House Charlotte Center City
Hyatt House Charlotte Center City is proud to award Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry a Hyatt Community Grant. This nonprofit is an emergency food pantry program that exists to provide food assistance to families and individuals in need in Charlotte, North Carolina and surrounding communities. By providing groceries once per month to low-income families, Loaves & Fishes helps low-income households stretch their food budgets further as they try to get on their feet financially.
Last spring, colleagues from Hyatt House Charlotte Center City volunteered in the warehouse of Loaves & Fishes, sorting and packing food donations for delivery to 20 food pantries in Charlotte. The team chose this non-profit partner because of the wonderful things they do for the community and their mission of providing a week’s worth of nutritionally balanced groceries, free of charge, to families and individuals experiencing a short-term crisis.
In 2014, Loaves & Fishes provided a one-week's supply of groceries to 78,602 people experiencing a financial emergency. Of those, 48% were children. The funds from the Hyatt Community Grant will provide 17,949 meals to the hungry in the Charlotte community.
