Every person has two types of hunger…physical and spiritual. At Filling The Void, that’s why We Feed. The Soul.
Our mission is to lift up the homeless and needy. The people we serve are hungry alright, but they’re also desperate for something deeper – hope. They’ve told us so.
We take a two-fold approach to helping the “whole” person, feeding them physically with high-quality sack lunches and ministering to their spiritual needs, as well.
We serve Arby’s roast beef and Chick-Fil-A sandwiches while sharing Bible verses and offering to pray with folks, too. The goal is to foster lasting life-change and to see them go from meals to miracles.
Since 2003, we’ve served more than 155,000 meals. Recently, we served 19,309 meals in 2018, which is our new high in a calendar year.
We serve people where we find them – shaking their hands, learning their names, and pointing them to other agencies where they can get additional support.
About 1/3 of those we serve are homeless. Another 1/3 live in shelters or temporary housing. The other 1/3 are simply just trying to get by and keep up with the bills.
In a nutshell, we’re mobile, mission-minded and motivated by Matthew 9:36 where “Jesus saw the crowds and was moved with compassion.”
