What is RFMA Gives?

Our industry gives us so much so we are giving back through RFMA Gives. With our first project completed in 2011, each year we select a charitable shelter or kitchen that’s in need of repairs or remodeling. We pool the talents and resources of RFMA members and share them with the chosen non-profit food service organization to make a significant difference in their ability to serve the community.

RFMA Gives 2019 

Our RFMA Gives 2019 project was Mobile Loaves & Fishes located in Austin, Texas. After visiting several wonderful organizations in the Austin area, MLF was chosen as a great fit for our association. Their mission is “to provide food and clothing, to cultivate community and to promote dignity to our homeless brothers and sisters in need. We empower the community into a lifestyle of service with the homeless”. They have several food trucks that go out daily to provide meals, clothing, and hygiene products to the local Austin homeless community. They built a “Community First! Village” that houses and welcomes home individuals who have been labeled as outcasts and pushed to the fringe of society to be forgotten (this is where our Volunteer Day will be). Feel free to visit their website at: to learn more.

Part of our RFMA Gives project includes a volunteer day where RFMA members and their families can come together to serve the project recipient. Over 150 volunteers, joined RFMA in Austin, TX on September 8th for our annual RFMA Gives Volunteer Day. Volunteers were able to help with a variety of projects at Mobile Loaves & Fishes and made a huge impact on the community and its residents. We are so grateful for all of our volunteers and the outpouring of support for the project.
