1704 Live Oak St., Beaufort, NC 28516

Monday-Saturday 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

First, we would like to thank our community for all of the donations that have been given to Loaves and Fishes to provide the community a place to buy quality household goods, furniture, and other items at a low price. Originally, we obtained this area to handle all of the donations that we have been receiving and all donations will still be processed through this area via a conex box located behind the shopping center near subway.

Because of the influx of donations that we have received, we are now able to now provide this site as a place for people to shop. This location is located next to subway and is available, during business hours, for shopping.


The Harker’s Island Food Pantry is located at the Harker’s Island Fire and Rescue and operates on the fourth Wednesday of each month that begins at noon.


Open from 10:00 am-1:00 pm on the first through the fourth Mondays of the month at the Loaves and Fishes Thrift Store. The pantry is closed every fifth Monday. Through this ministry, we are able to serve a variety of nutritious foods, both perishable and non-perishable to families who are on a fixed or limited income
