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.

At each of our five centers, Hopelink food banks offer food from every nutritional group, as well as baby items and personal care products. Please call the food bank in your specific service area (see below) so that we can schedule an appointment for you to register for food bank.There are special distribution times for seniors and people with disabilities, and evening hours for working families.  We make weekly deliveries to clients who are homebound. Hopelink center contact information.

Hopelink also has an Emergency Feeding Services program.

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.
