Utilizing a Mobile Loaves and Fishes food truck which we rent from Riverbend Church, we make 3 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.

The second team leaves in the loaded truck at 5:00 PM to make the designated stops to distribute the food and clothing, returning to the church by 7:30 PM.
