Food

When a family doesn't have enough food - the most basic human need - stability in other areas is impossible. Hopelink provides food for survival and nutrition education for self-sufficiency.

Please call the food bank that serves your zip code (see side) so that we can schedule an appointment for you to register for food bank. Once you are registered for the food bank, you will be able to attend twice per month. Food products available include: fresh produce, soup, tomato products, bread, pasta, peanut butter, rice, canned fruits and vegetables, beans, tuna and refrigerated dairy items. In addition, paper products, soap, toothpaste, diapers and other non-food items are often available. Hopelink also has volunteers who are able to make home deliveries to homebound individuals.

Education
While our food banks help families in crisis, we also believe in helping families to make lasting change by learning about nutrition, safe food handling, and budgeting for groceries.
