The Fish & Loaves Humane Society began serving meals in the community of Tofino in 2007. Since then it has grown to helping people new to town who need support until they can find a job, and to helping people who are on disability or who are disadvantaged. Attendance at the lunch varies from as few as five to as many as 80.
The Fish & Loaves Humane Society also refers people to community social services; provides transportation; talks and prays with visitors; and offers spiritual direction and Christian witness.
"Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, He gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then He gave them to His disciples to distribute to the people." Mark 6:41
