Hope Food Pantry works to alleviate hunger in the community. Many of our clients are older adults, single parents, the homeless, people with disabilities, unemployed or under-employed. Generous donations allow Hope to continue distributing the basic nutritional staples of rice and beans, canned fruit and vegetables, tuna, pasta and pasta sauce, and a few choice items each week.
Impact: Hope volunteers distribute groceries to approximately 90 families a week and approximately 1300 individuals a month. Hope volunteers welcome clients to receive groceries every Thursday and Friday mornings and first Saturday of the month from 9 – 10:30a.m. Hope volunteers have been supplying Austin families with groceries since 2000.
