Loaves & Fishes
A Ministry of Compassion & Care
Reaching Out to Wounded Soldiers at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center
The Loaves & Fishes Ministry was born in the fall of 2010 when we decided to engage in an intentional outreach with wounded servicemen and women at Bethesda Naval Hospital/Walter Reed. From the beginning the response of members and friends in the congregation has been overwhelmingly generous. We raised over $15,000 as seed money for this effort through our Christmas Eve Offering that year.
Since then, a group from BUMC has served lunch on the third Saturday of every month to the wounded servicemen and women, their families and staff at Walter Reed. New volunteers are always welcome. You can also help out by providing cut-up fruit or homemade baked goods.
