Loaves & Fishes Outreach Center

Loaves and Fishes Outreach Center located in Hinton, WV has been working to reduce poverty in Summers County since 1986. Building on the foundation set by the vision, compassion and dedication of a few friends 25 years ago, Loaves & Fishes of Catholic Charities WV remains visible and active, consistently working to reduce poverty in Hinton and Summers County.

We provide basic needs assistance and opportunities for growth through a variety of programs that include WellnessWorks and our annual summer camp.
