Mobile Loaves & Fishes, Inc. ("mlf") is a social outreach ministry that empowers communities into a lifestyle of service with the homeless. Mlf's mission is to provide food and clothing, cultivate community and promote dignity to our homeless brothers and sisters in need. Delivering more than a sandwich, Mobile Loaves & Fishes' food truck volunteers hit the streets 7 nights a week, 365 days a year to provide food, clothing, hygiene products and other life-sustaining items to our homeless neighbors. With the support of more than 29,160 volunteers and over 6 million meals served, Mobile Loaves & Fishes is the largest prepared feeding program to the homeless and working poor in austin, Texas.
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 dignified 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. Micro-enterprise opportunities currently available through community works include gardening, art, hospitality, groundskeeping, housekeeping, janitorial, culinary arts and other jobs.
The relationships developed through mlf's truck ministry are often the beginning of a journey home for the homeless. Community first village is a 51-acre master planned community that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for the 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.
