If the current trends continues, the number of hungry people worldwide will reach 840 million by 2030. This startling statistic is from the Food Aid Foundation. In 2020, Loaves and Fishes Ministries of Fremont County provided 338,390 pounds of food to the community. 1,560 holiday meals were provided, and 42,656 meals were served as an emergency...and they still need our help.  

Loaves and Fishes Ministry, founded in 1984, has become the primary resource in Fremont County for those in need. Each month over 25,000 pounds of food are given out to our community.  In December of 2020 Tezak Heavy Equipment donated 403 pounds of food. 126 turkeys and a cash donation of $100.00.
