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 20,000 volunteers and over 5.5 million meals served, Mobile Loaves & Fishes is the largest prepared feeding program to the homeless and working poor in Austin, Texas.

Dignity & Respect

Relieving immediate hunger is fundamental for taking the next step toward emotional, spiritual and physical healing. With dignity and respect, our caring volunteers prepare and deliver wholesome meals and other basic needs to our homeless brothers and sisters who are struggling to survive. A handshake, a hug or a friendly smile can go a long way.

“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

Trusted Relationships

The primary cause of homelessness is a catastrophic loss of family. What begins with a sandwich and a conversation with a caring Mobile Loaves & Fishes volunteer soon opens the door to community and relationships where they’re needed most. As we faithfully serve our homeless neighbors and deliver meals with a side of hope, lives truly are transformed.
