Community Celebrates Loaves & Fishes 30th Anniversary

Updated: August 24, 2019 11:15 PM

Loaves & Fishes celebrated their 30th year on Saturday with their annual family-friendly block party held on Jefferson Street in Duluth.


Tons of community members came out to celebrate with live music, food, games and prizes. The Duluth Fire Department came as well, and kids loved touring the inside of the engine.

Angie Miller and the late Steve O'Neil founded Loaves & Fishes in 1989 with the simple premise: create world in which it's easier to do good.

They purchased a home on Jefferson Street, opened its doors to war refugees, survivors of domestic violence, and people experiencing homelessness.

The one home grew to four, and the premise is still relevant today.

"To get to know each other, and to know your neighbor. Everybody caring and sharing. It's a good thing. That's what it's all about. Being good to each other, and knowing who your friends are and who your neighbors are," said Harry Victor of Loaves & Fishes. 

On Sunday there will be a blessing of the Loaves & Fishes houses at 1614 Jefferson Street starting at 9:00 a.m.
