Loaves and Fishes

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Trinity Loaves and Fishes. There are many ways you can get involved and we encourage everyone to find the volunteering opportunity that fits them best. After reading the descriptions below, please contact our Director Aaron Taylor at 504-301-7432 or by email at tlfcoordinator@trinitynola.com to volunteer. You can volunteer one day at a time or choose a regular day each week or month to volunteer. Creating a volunteering team is also possible.

Preparing Food
Six days a week we prepare a simple meal for delivery throughout the greater metropolitan area to a wide variety of people in need.  Meal preparation is done in Bishop Polk Hall at Trinity Church. We generally begin at 9 am each morning and preparation lasts less than two hours.  

Delivering Food
After the preparation of the food and the loading of the TLF truck, we take it directly to those in need and serve them by handing out nutritious meals and drinks, as well as clothes and toiletries. Food delivery takes place after preparation and is generally finished up at noon each day.

Driving the TLF Truck
We need qualified drivers for the TLF truck ministry too.  You must hold a valid driver’s license, be at least 18 years old and fill out a simple form in order to be added to our insurance policy.  It takes no time at all and is a wonderful way to free up the time of our TLF Coordinator so that they can work on other aspects of this vital ministry.

Creating a Team
If you have a group of five to eight people who would be interested in serving the TLF ministry on a specific day each week or month, this is possible too.  This is a great way to build community while supporting a very worthy ministry for our city.  The consistency of our volunteer teams makes the TLF ministry run efficiently and smoothly.

Collecting Clothes and Toiletries
You can also assist this ministry by collecting seasonally appropriate clothing, new underwear and socks.  The best sizes are medium to large for both men and women.  Gloves, hats and scarves are appreciated during cooler months.  This is a great place to send extra tee shirts from events you, or your business, have hosted.  

Collecting travel-sized toiletries is also a wonderful way to serve in the TLF ministry.  This might include:  toothbrushes, soaps, lotions, toothpaste, wet wipes, mouthwash, and hand sanitizer.

Monetary Donations
The TLF ministry is primarily a volunteer run organization that relies on the generosity of those in our community.  We gladly accept donations at any time during the year and in any amount.  This is a lovely way for children to become involved in serving the TLF ministry.  Any simple collection effort, or asking for donations in lieu of gifts for birthdays and other occasions, can bless the lives of the children and those in our community that they will help by their efforts.
