Ministry Description:
Utilizing a Mobile Loaves and Fishes food truck which we borrow from Riverbend Church, we make 2 or more evening runs per month to distribute food and clothing to the homeless. MLF has designated ‘drop points’ identified and we select the 1 to 3 stops to make in an evening delivering sandwiches, fruit, chips and drinks.

Types of Volunteers Needed:
There are 2 teams of 5 persons each involved in each evening’s distribution run. The first team meets about 4:00 PM to prepare approximately 200 sandwiches and load the truck with food and drink items. The second team leaves in the loaded truck at approximately 5:15 PM to make the designated stops to distribute the food and clothing, returning to the church at approximately 8:00 PM.

  • Prepare food (usually sandwiches) - meet at Bethany at 4:00 PM
  • Deliver food in the Mobile Loaves & Fishes truck, usually from 5:15-8:00 PM
  • Help purchase food
  • Prepare hard boiled eggs (typically 4 dozen needed)
  • Bake cookies  (8 dozen needed)
  • Donate clothing (including children sizes)
  • Donate socks, gloves etc.
  • $$$ donations to offset the run costs
