“Dining with one’s friends and beloved family is certainly one of life’s primal and most innocent delights, one that is both soul-satisfying and eternal.”   Julia Child 

No matter how you slice and dice it, food and love are inextricably tied.  In fact, a recent poll of a thousand people revealed that 75 percent agreed that preparing food for someone is a significant act of love AND that dining together can radically shift people’s perspectives, reduce perceptions of inequality, and bring different races, genders, and socioeconomic backgrounds together in ways other social scenarios can not.

Let us consider how we can stir up one another to love.  Let us help one another to do good works.  And let us not give up meeting together.  Hebrews 10:24-25

Mid-Week Meal Delivery: for many of the families we serve, the most common occurrence is loneliness.  Providing & delivering a meal is a great way to bring comfort and caring to Individuals & families who are experiencing hardship & isolation.

 Eat, Pray Love combines food with fellowship so that all those participating can experience the oldest act of community – sharing a meal.  We invite volunteers to join us as we welcome new families into the fold of a loving community.     Dinners are on Sunday evenings from 4:30-6:00pm unless otherwise noted.

Partners in Hope is a Lake Travis ministry that connects people who desire physical, emotional, and spiritual help with people who will help.

What makes us different?  Unlike ministries that organize a crisis response to a housing emergency, Partners in Hope helps families by working to improve living conditions, walking through a season of life, and empowering them to transform over time.

PIH connects families to community support and resources through relationships with volunteers and empowers donors to impact their community by stewarding their resources well.
