Serving our community is our greatest passion

Our mission at Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry is to feed and serve the hungry. We strive to eliminate food insecurity in Hancock County. We treat all with respect so that they leave our pantry not just with groceries, but also with dignity and hope.

Located behind the Unitarian Universalist Church in Ellsworth, we are one of the largest food pantries in Hancock County. During 2020, we were honored to serve 3,521 households and 8,981 individuals. Your financial gift can help us continue our mission.

When we all work together, we can create major change in our community. Contact us today to learn how you can get involved.
