“Everything we do is about relationships. The biggest lesson we have learned over the years is that we are not a food ministry. We merely use food as a conduit to connect human to human and heart to heart.”
—Alan Graham, Founder & CEO of Mobile Loaves & Fishes (MLF)
The primary cause of homelessness is a catastrophic loss of community, which is where MLF comes in. What begins with a sandwich and a conversation with a caring MLF food truck volunteer soon opens the door to community and relationships where they are needed most. The MLF downtown Austin truck, based at FUMC, continues to serve meals to the homeless and working poor in our community—and we are needed now more than ever!
Last year, our MLF truck provided over 20,000 hearty meals with the help of more than 300 dedicated volunteers. That is a lot of sandwiches and conversations! In July, we are lifting up this ministry that fosters friendship and kinship for those who have experienced that catastrophic loss of family.
