Fishes and Loaves Cooperative Ministries serves the people of Hazelwood and surrounding communities. The Food Buying Club brings wholesome food into the community at reasonable prices. On the first and third Saturday of each month we shop in Pittsburgh's Strip District - we get bread from Macini's Bakery and fresh fish, meat, produce, dairy and canned goods from Wholey's. We bring the groceries back to the neighborhood and distribute the food to club members who have ordered it. We also bring extra produce for sale on an "ala carte" basis.
The club started in 2011 with the goal of helping people who find it difficult to get to a grocery store. Our neighborhood is classified as a Food Desert because we have no grocery stores. Three churches (St. Stephen, Hazelwood Christian and Hazelwood Presbyterian) along with the Hazelwood Initiative Community Organization have been working together.
You may download a membership form and an order form below. For more information, contact Deacon Tom Berna or
Fr. Vince Stegman, CSSp. You may also reach Deacon Tom at 412-414-3125.
Fishes and Loaves Operations Manual
The Buying Club has been assisted by Keystone Development Corporation in developing procedures and policies. These have been assembled to help other groups who may want to use this model. We offer our Operations Manual to those who are interested. A donation of $20 - $30 is greatly appreciated. To obtain a copy, please send an e-mail to Deacon Tom Berna.
