Our Food Assistance Programs… Together We Do More!

At Blessings of Hope, we specialize in warehousing large quantities of food and distributing it into manageable portions to help feed the hungry. Our food assistance programs get the food we’ve collected where it’s needed most… in the hands of the needy. You can help in that mission. Whether you’re a ministry or church, business owner, or just someone looking to help, our programs give you a chance to serve your community and spread the gift of hope through our local food bank!

Ministry Partnerships

We supply your organization with food, enabling you to serve more effectively.

We provide:

  • Freedom to minister and share the gospel message of Jesus Christ while distributing food with no religious restrictions.
  • Fresh produce and quality food
  • A regular, predictable food source for your food assistance programs
  • Convenient food selection hours

How It Works

To effectively supply your needs, we’ve set up an area for your organization to select what you need for your outreach and food assistance programs. Representatives from your organization can walk through our warehouse, cooler, and freezer, selecting products to fulfill your needs. You pay a minimal handling fee and select from whatever foods we have on display.

Food Selection Days:

Mondays: 1:00pm – 8:00pm (Note: we are closed Monday mornings for restocking and staff meetings)
Tuesdays: 8:00am – 5:00pm
Wednesdays: 8:00am – 5:00pm
Thursdays: 8:00am – 8:00pm
Fridays: 8:00am – 5:00pm
Saturdays: 9:00am – 1:00pm

Hands of Hope Food Box Programs

1. Prepackaged Community Food Boxes

Blessings of Hope is now preparing Hands of Hope prepackaged food boxes to empower you or your organization to reach out to communities in need. By pre-packing food boxes, we’re able to help you serve the community while still keeping social-distancing and your safety in mind. You can also sponsor boxes that get sent to inner-city areas without having to leave your home!

How it Works

  • You sponsor a certain amount of boxes at $7.00/box.
    We don’t buy any of the food we receive, it is all donated to us. Your donation helps cover costs associated with packing and distributing Hands of Hope food boxes.
  • Approximately 35 to 40 pounds of food gets packed into a brand new, beautifully designed box.
    The food is usually whatever we have available, but it is always a good variety of perishable and non-perishable foods.
  • You decide how you want the food distributed.
    You can either pick up the boxes yourself to distribute to someone you know who is struggling, or you can choose to have Blessings of Hope distribute them for you at one of our community outreaches.

The convenience of this service is that you can purchase boxes at any time! If you or your ministry would like to deliver the boxes yourself, just pre-order and then pick up the boxes at our facility in Leola, PA.

Delivery Options

Orders of 100 boxes or more qualify for free delivery within 100 miles of our Leola location, an additional fee is added beyond that.

Ready to order a prepackaged food box or 2, or 100, or 1,000? Check out our online store where you can make a donation! Contact us if you have any questions.

2. Pack-Your-Own Food Boxes

At Blessings of Hope, we believe individuals have the power to make a huge impact in their community. Our Hands of Hope food program is designed to empower you to reach out to people in need, one family at a time. This is an opportunity to take a personally packaged box of food to a family in need and bless them in their homes.

How It Works

  • You visit our facility and make a $10 donation per box
  • We give you a new box to fill with food of your choice from our well-stocked warehouse
  • You personally deliver the box to a family in need to bless them with your gift
