MLF TRUCK MINISTRY
Mobile Loaves & Fishes' food truck volunteers hit the streets 7 nights a week, 365 days a year to serve the homeless, delivering food, clothing, hygiene products and other life-sustaining items. With the support of more than 19,000 volunteers and over 5 million meals served, Mobile Loaves & Fishes is the largest prepared feeding program to the homeless and working poor in Austin, Texas.

COMMUNITY FIRST! VILLAGE
Community First! Village is a 27-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the disabled, chronically homeless in Central Texas. Since 2005, this transformative residential program has been a staple of Mobile Loaves & Fishes and has become the largest community-based model in the country lifting homeless men and women up off the streets into community and home.

COMMUNITY WORKS
Community Works provides micro-enterprise opportunities that enable men and women who are coming out of chronic homelessness to use their God-given talents to earn a modest living income. In addition, the program empowers Mobile Loaves & Fishes volunteers to serve alongside and build enduring relationships with our friends as they develop new skills.

Impact Statement

We empower communities into a lifestyle of service with the homeless. What begins with a sandwich from a MLF truck and a conversation with a caring volunteer soon evolves into trusted relationships - creating family and community where there were none. As we faithfully work to provide food and clothing and promote dignity to our homeless neighbors, their lives are transformed, lifting them off the streets into community and home.

MLF operates 12 food trucks, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to serve meals to men and women living on the streets of Austin. Through our dedicated volunteers and generous donors, we have served more than 5 million meals since 1998.
