TOP SECRET

We’re working on something really special to celebrate our 15th anniversary in mid-October. Stay tuned for our big reveal. In the meantime, here’s a look back at the story that started it all, with service to one man and now many.

OUR MIDYEAR REPORT

We did 113 outreaches, served 8,890 meals & prayed with 2,400 people in the first half of 2018. That’s a record-setting pace for Filling The Void. You can see our complete report right here.

life-change starts with lunch

Filling the Void is a faith-based 501(c)(3) ministry that feeds the homeless and needy. Most of what we do occurs outside in all weather as we reach out to people in desperate situations. All of our meals include a special message of hope.

FOR THE FUTURE

Hunger and homelessness know no bounds. We’re multiplying our ministry to the needy, with a goal of serving 1 million meals. See how we’re building a model to sustain our work for decades. It’s a critical shift from just “doing” to “developing.”

MORE THAN A MEAL

The people we meet desperately want more than a meal. Need proof? Read this letter we received. We love serving sack lunches, but we know it’s the message of hope we share that has the power to change a person’s life.

it’s in the bag

PB&J? No way! We never make food at home. There are rules and regs against that. Everything we serve is (1) prepared in a commercial kitchen at a restaurant or shelter and (2) non-perishable. The primary staple in our sacks is an Arby’s or Chick-Fil-A sandwich, accompanied by bottled water, chips, cookies and an all-natural fruit bar purchased in bulk at big-box retailers.

just sayin’

Our motivation comes from Matthew 9:36. It says, “When Jesus saw the crowds, He was moved with compassion.” We are too. But before you go gettin’ the wrong idea, non-discrimination is part of our DNA. We spelled it out as a matter of policy.
