The Great Physician Healthy Living Events are an opportunity for Loaves and Fishes to help clients find out more about the latest medical assistance and durable medical goods available in our area. Many medical offices and insurance companies have the opportunity to display and exhibit in our Bread of Life Dining Hall. A representative, presenting in our dining hall, is allowed to hand out literature; offering their products and services. By outlining their services, our clients will have a better understanding of their medical needs.
