    Swimmers from both teams are asked to donate the following needed items to our collection: diapers, wipes, toilet paper, whole grain cereals, whole grain pastas, oatmeal, rice and couscous.  The team with the most collected items wins the challenge and will be announced at the meet.

    For those who don't know, Loaves & Fishes Community Services provides healthy food and impactful programs to promote self-sufficiency. Loaves & Fishes began 35 years ago in a church closet with just 8 families. Today, we serve more than 800 families A WEEK with grocery assistance and programs to help people become self-sufficient. 1 in 5 individuals is living in poverty or with a low-income in DuPage County. Loaves & Fishes is able to help struggling families because of the support of the community, like you!
