What We Do

Hunger Relief Initiatives

We work with businesses, churches, foundations, governments, and sports teams to provide quality food to local communities. Get involved through our Mobile Community Markets, Community Markets, meal delivery services, backpack program and more.


We're crazy enough to think we can change statistics. According to the USDA, more than 34 million people in the United States are food insecure. This includes over 9 million children. The pandemic and inflation that our country has faced, has increased food insecurity among all races, classes, and ages, and those facing food insecurity before are struggling even more now. Many households that face food insecurity do not qualify for federal nutrition programs so they rely on other sources, like food banks. However, many do not have access to food banks or other food distributors due to the lack of transportation. The elderly, the handicapped, and the low income are included in this group.

At The 128 Project, we help anyone who is "needy." The IRS defines "needy" as those who are unable to provide for their own needs without the assistance of others. We assist those that are needy, whether it is for the short-term or for a longer period of time.

Our goal is to change the statistics of food insecurity for the people of the Gulf Coast Region, and we are crazy enough to think we can do it.

What We Have Done So Far in 2023

Pounds of Food Served


Meals Served

Households Served

Dollars Saved Families

*These are funds families can now use to pay their mortgage, rent, utilities, medical bills, medicine, etc. 


We mobilize hundreds of volunteers a year —  and whether it's your first time or your hundredth time, you have something unique to bring to the table. Volunteers transform lives, and in the process are transformed themselves. Our volunteers are beacons of hope and connection to hurting and isolated people.

Everything we do is about building relationships and humans treating other humans as such. Our volunteers do more than serve food, they build relationships. In fact, the food that is served is the least of our cares, what we do is all about loving  people.
