Our Food Assistance Programs…
Together We Can Do More!
Blessings of Hope is a food bank, or a food distributing service, for nonprofits. We receive large quantities of foods, break it down into manageable sizes, and then offer it to our ministry partners, who provide hunger relief throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
Partner Food Selection Program
To effectively serve our Ministry Partners, we have set up a large food selection area from which you can select the items needed for your nonprofit ministry. Please note: these products are NOT to be sold or bartered for any reason! Blessings of Hope is a nonprofit, Christian ministry, not open to the general public.
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. You are simply paying a handling/service fee to help underwrite our operational costs.
Handling / Service Fees :
• $0.19 per lb. handling fee for all food you take from Blessings of Hope.
• $0.15 per lb. If you take a full skid of product as displayed.
• $0.13 per lb. If you take over 10,000 lbs on any single pickup.
Food Selection Hours:
Mondays: 8:00am – 8:00pm
Tuesdays: 8:00am – 5:00pm
Wednesdays: 8:00am – 8:00pm
Thursdays: 8:00am – 8:00pm
Fridays: 8:00am – 8:00pm
Saturdays: 8:00am – 1:00pm
If you select food in the evenings you are responsible for selecting and loading the food by yourself. We will not provide assistance from 5:00 – 8:00pm. Thank you!

Hands of Hope Food Boxes
1. Prepackaged Food Boxes
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.
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.
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 do that by taking a personally packaged box of food to a family in need and blessing them, one family at a time.
How It Works
- You visit our facility, fill out a paper stating who you are giving the box to and why, and make a suggested $10 donation per box.
- We give you a new box to fill with food of your choice from our well-stocked food selection area.
- You personally deliver this box to a family in need to bless them with your gift of love.
Our warehouse is located at 500 Becker Rd, Leola, PA 17540.
If you’d like to be part of spreading hope throughout your community, donations are always welcome in any amount. Every little bit helps feed the hungry. In fact, generous support from individual donors makes up the majority of our operating income throughout each year!
