Loaves & Fishes

  • Print

In the summer of 1983, Milo and Marian Reno and friends began offering packages of donated lunch meat and loaves of bread to homes in low-income Tulsa neighborhoods. In addition to the food, they also offered to pray with the people for their particular needs. As the need was so large, the Reno's were given the use of a warehouse in West Tulsa and began distributing groceries from a rented space on East 11th Street.

In 1987 Loaves & Fishes moved to their current location on 19th Street, just east of Garnett Ave. After leasing the building for 23 years, they and their financial partners purchased and remodeled their building this year. Families in financial crises are treated as guests in Loaves & Fishes' beautiful new home! This year Loaves & Fishes is celebrating its 30th anniversary of helping people in financial crises with groceries, encouragement from the Word of God, and prayer.
Loaves & Fishes Ministries assists low-income families in the Tulsa area with groceries and hot lunches on Mondays and Wednesdays. Marian explains the experience of a guest who visits Loaves & Fishes at the newly remodeled facility at 19th & South Garnett. "Doors open at 12 Noon on Mondays and Wednesdays. Our guests enter the building smelling a home-cooked meal and are treated as guests, not clients. After all have eaten, a short message of encouragement is offered from the Bible. All leave with an abundance of groceries and, hopefully, a little lighter heart."

Their goal is to help people get back on their feet and enjoy the blessings of God. Those who wish to volunteer or donate food or finances may call 918-234-8574. Monetary donations may be given on their website: or mailed to Loaves & Fishes Ministries, P.O. Box 33155, Tulsa, OK 74153.
