Check out our RFMA Gives blog for the latest updates at our 2019 RFMA Gives Project at Mobile Loaves and Fishes in Austin. The Community Table Pavilion had a pizza oven (Texas Oven Co.) installed along with new clear plastic roll-down awnings (Austin American Awning) which has made this area useful during the winter months. New A/C units for the restrooms in the Unity Hall were supplied and installed by CNSA (Consolidated Services of North America, LLC). The storage shed is now complete due to the efforts of Chipotle and K&N Management. Thank you so much to all of our incredible volunteers!
