14 Matthew - Revised Standard Version The Gospel
Now when Jesus heard this, he withdrew from there in a boat to a lonely place apart. But when the crowds heard it, they followed him on foot from the towns.The Feeding of the Five Thousand Mt.14.13-21 Mk.6.30-44  Lk.9.10-17  Jn.6.1-14   
As he went ashore he saw a great throng; and he had compassion on them, and healed their sick.         
When it was evening, the disciples came to him and said, "This is a lonely place, and the day is now over; send the crowds away to go into the villages and buy food for themselves."         
Jesus said, "They need not go away; you give them something to eat."         
They said to him, "We have only five loaves here and two fish."         
And he said, "Bring them here to me."         
Then he ordered the crowds to sit down on the grass; and taking the five loaves and the two fish he looked up to heaven, and blessed, and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the crowds.         
And they all ate and were satisfied. And they took up twelve baskets full of the broken pieces left over.         
And those who ate were about five thousand men, besides women and children.
