Statement Release on COVID-19 From Executive Director, Noel Kammermann

March 16, 2020

Dear Sacramento Loaves & Fishes Community,
As we all navigate the changing circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to assure our community of guests, volunteers, staff, and supporters that we remain dedicated to our mission of providing critical services for adults and children experiencing homelessness in Sacramento. We continue to monitor the evolving response from our local, state, and federal government and comply with their recommended guidelines. Loaves & Fishes is committed to the health and wellbeing of our 80 staff and 4,000 volunteers. As a result, we have made changes to our operations. Based on Governor Newsom’s recommendation on March 15, 2020, we request that any staff or volunteer over the age of 65 stay home and self-quarantine.
Operating hours for all essential campus programs are from 7am-3pm Monday-Friday day until further notice.

Sacramento Loaves & Fishes has served as a house of hospitality for nearly 40 years, and we have endured challenges in the past, but the onset of this pandemic is unprecedented. We have been told that life will drastically change in America and are already experiencing these effects.  As the local and state government make promises of sheltering our most vulnerable populations, the question remains of how long this process may take and what barriers will arise. We will continue to be here in the fight for our guest’s survival and provide them with no-barrier services to address their immediate needs. Your support is needed now more than ever.
We expect that in this time of crisis, donations will be sparse and for our organization, which is 100% resourced by our community of supporters and foundations, we will need your continued support. Please make a monetary donation online or drop-off in-kind items to our warehouse open until noon each day.
We will keep you informed with any changes or other announcements. For questions or concerns, please email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
In community,

Noel Kammermann

To paraphrase Co-Founder Chris Delany, Loaves & Fishes started from a mustard seed and has become an oasis. You dear reader, along with our committed supporters are what continues to nourish this sacred space. Please donate today to ensure critical survival services are delivered to nearly 1,000 adults and children everyday.

No Government Funds

Loaves & Fishes does not accept or solicit government funds. This policy allows us to meet our guests where they are, take their individual needs into account, and grow our programs to better support them. We are free to be a voice for homeless men, women, and children and when necessary stand up to government officials without fear of losing our funding.

This also means that we rely entirely on private and community support, so you literally make our work possible. Your support keeps nearly 1,000 daily guests from constant hunger, desperation, and despair. Together we can do BIG things for Sacramento's homeless men, women, and children.
