Who we are


Loaves and Fishes is a community of people inspired by Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker movement to build “a new society within the shell of the old.” We believe in a world that is abundant with resources and love, and that there is enough for everyone if we share. As a community we offer family-style hospitality to people experiencing homelessness; operate a no-cost neighborhood bicycle shop to promote shared economics; organize with our neighbors to protect everyone’s right to housing; and study and practice nonviolence in our interpersonal relationships and in our politics. Loaves and Fishes is entirely volunteer-run and receives no government funding.  



Current live-in members of Loaves and Fishes Community are: Drew Anderson, Shelly Bruecken, Chelsea Froemke, Donna Howard, Sarah Kilbarger-Stumpff, Joel Kilgour, Tone Lanzillo, Anne Scheppers, and Kate Young. Many other people are part of our community as volunteers, donors, meal providers and advocates. We invite you to join us in whatever ways you can.
