Hands of Hope Community Food Boxes
You are not buying food – You are simply making a donation to help cover the costs associated with distributing this box of food.
Please have your box orders in 3 business days in advance to ensure the food boxes will be ready when you come to pick them up or have them delivered.
If you need to cancel your order within 3 days of your delivery, we will redirect the food to another outreach on your behalf. If we have at least 3 days’ notice you can reschedule the delivery for a different day, but no refunds will be provided.
Boxes can be picked up at our warehouse in Leola, PA. on Monday to Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (Monday & Thursday 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM) and Saturday 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
If you do not have the capacity to manage outreach, you can sponsor boxes that Blessings of Hope will distribute. (Select at check out)
Due to rising costs associated with packing these food boxes, we are adjusting the price to cover the costs as well.
We are offering prepackaged food boxes (approximately 40 pounds) for a $7.95 donation to help cover the costs 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 empowers you or your organization to serve the community in a tangible way.
We prepack the food boxes with whatever food items we have available. Each box usually has a nice assortment of fresh and shelf-stable foods inside. We do not customize boxes for you.
Note: While most of the food in the box is in date food, we do distribute food past the "best by" date on the package.

Delivery of 100 boxes or more, within 100 miles of Leola, PA is free. Beyond 100 miles, our delivery cost is $2.95 per mile. This can all be paid right on our website.
Cancelation Policy: Up to 3 days before your scheduled delivery or pickup, you can reschedule the delivery for a different day at no cost. To keep things fresh and reduce waste, if you need to cancel your order within 3 days of your delivery, we will redirect the food that we were reserving for your order to another outreach on your behalf. The funds you donated for the outreach will still be utilized for their intended purpose, and the food we were reserving for your boxes will still be utilized. Just in a different city.
In no case is Blessings of Hope responsible to refund the Handling Fee Donation we received when the order was placed.
You can sponsor any number of boxes you want, pick them up at our warehouse in Leola, PA, and distribute them to people you know that need food. You can also sponsor boxes that we can send into the inner-city areas and we can do the outreaches.
Blessings of Hope is a nonprofit food distribution center serving food banks. Our mission is to empower other organizations to efficiently reach their community with food and acts of love. Due to our limited capacity and our model of operation, we cannot serve the individual needs of the general public at our facility.
