Chili Van Mobile Ministry
Under the leadership of the Orange County Rescue Mission, the Chili Van mobile food ministry is able to provide a warm meal to hundreds of people who are either homeless or don’t have enough money to put food on the table each day. The newly renovated vehicle provides hot meals, beverages, and bread to thousands of at-risk people in poverty-stricken areas of Orange County. On a typical evening the team serves an average of 315 portions of chili, coffee and fresh bakery bread. In addition, they pass out Bibles and pray with those who would like it. For more information please contact the Outreach Team at 714-247-4316 or email [email protected].
If you are interested in volunteering as a Chili Van Driver, contact our Volunteer Coordinator at [email protected] to complete the application and background check.
