Truck Ministry

Delivering More than a Sandwich – 365 days a year, volunteers hit the streets of five cities to serve the homeless, delivering food, clothing, hygiene products, and life-sustaining items where needed most.

It was late in the evening and I stood with my friends in the parking lot. We were very hungry, but none of us had money to buy food. We prayed that God would send food our way. Just as we finished praying, the Mobile Loaves & Fishes truck drove around the corner. It was a miracle. Our prayer was answered!  —CASEY

Trusted Relationships

What begins with a sandwich 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, lives are transformed, lifting them off the streets into community and home.

Dignity & Respect

Relieving immediate hunger is fundamental to taking the next step toward emotional and spiritual healing; earning an income; making a home; and developing healthy relationships. With dignity and respect, our caring volunteers prepare and deliver wholesome meals, clothing essentials, and hygiene products to our homeless brothers and sisters.

Team 888

Austin Chronicle, January 2016

On the second Wednesday of each month, one of those [MLF] 12 trucks goes completely off the grid, eschewing the well-known spots for urban campgrounds and lesser known gathering spots throughout the city. The truck is run by Danny Henderson, a Cali­for­nia native who moved to Austin in 1997 and has been mostly homeless ever since. Transients who know him often call him “Preacher,” from the ministry Team 888. MORE>

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 & President

Taking the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowd. They all ate and were satisfied, and they picked up the fragments left over – twelve wicker baskets full. – MATTHEW 14:19-20
