Our Food Assistance Programs…

Together We Can Do More!

 

Blessings of Hope is a nonprofit food dissemination center created to be a vital link in the American food chain. Large corporations efficiently donate food through Blessings of Hope to accomplish zero food waste and give back to the global community.

Together with our staff and volunteers, we repackage food into manageable sizes and organize it for efficient distribution. One box of our food usually weighs about 40 lbs. This allows us to empower regional ministries, churches, disaster relief organizations, and food banks to serve their local communities through feeding the hungry and sharing the love of Jesus throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. 

 

Program #1:  Partner Food Selection Program

To effectively serve our Partner Ministries, we set up large Ministry Selection Centers where you can select the items needed for your nonprofit ministry. Our reclamation process sources products from many diverse suppliers for the sole purpose of empowering others to be the “Hands and Feet of Jesus”. All product is free, but we ask our partners to help with our operational costs by paying a handling/service fee. 

Please note: these products are NOT to be sold or bartered for any reason!

 

Handling / Service Fees :

  • $0.25 per pound handling fee for all food you take from Blessings of Hope.
  • $0.35 per pound if we do extra work to prepare product for International Shipping.

Program #2:  Hands of Hope Food Boxes

 

Prepackaged Food Boxes

We offer prepackaged food boxes (approximately 30 – 40 pounds) for a handling fee of $9.25 per box to help cover the cost of packing the box. These boxes are beautifully packed with quality foods and a Gospel of John booklet for a message of hope. Hands of Hope food boxes empower you or your organization to serve the community in a tangible way.

We prepack the boxes with the food items we have currently available, including a nice assortment of fresh and shelf-stable foods. We do not customize boxes for you.

Available for pickup at the Lancaster location only and for delivery to surrounding areas.

Program #3:  Sharing Hope Food Voucher

 

Sharing Hope Food Voucher Program is designed to empower communities to bless families or individuals who are struggling with food insecurity and facing hardships. All food is given away in good faith at no cost. Food received from Blessings of Hope may not be sold, bartered or consumed by the sponsor for any reason. 

Sharing Hope Vouchers (each packet contains 10 vouchers) can be sponsored for distribution to at-risk families/individuals who are able to visit one of our Ministry Selection Centers. Each voucher grants the bearer access to a Blessings of Hope Ministry Selection Center to fill 1 box with anything on display. (Blessings of Hope Apparel is not included)
