Loaves and Fishes Ministries opened its doors and began to offer services in the spring of 1981 in response to the critical need for shelter in our greater Lansing community.

In establishing the program, the original five co-founders took inspiration from the social justice teachings as exemplified by Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
