Mobile Loaves & Fishes (MLF) is a social outreach ministry that has been empowering communities into a lifestyle of service with the homeless since 1998. Founded in Austin, Texas, the organization serves its homeless neighbors through three core programs: Truck Ministry, Community First! Village and Community Works.
Through the support of thousands of volunteers, Mobile Loaves & Fishes food trucks hit the streets of Austin 7 nights a week, 365 days a year to provide food, clothing and other life-sustaining items to homeless men and women who are struggling to survive. With more than 5.5 million meals served, MLF has grown to become the largest prepared feeding program to the homeless in Central Texas. As a result of the multitude of connections we've made with our homeless neighbors, we've learned that the single greatest cause of homelessness is a profound, catastrophic loss of family. It's from this understanding that MLF's vision emerged to build Community First! Village to welcome home our friends who had been pushed to the fringe of society. Community First! Village is a 51-acre master planned development that provides affordable, permanent housing and a supportive community for men and women coming out of chronic homelessness.
