Hope’s Food Pantry

“Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received.”

1 Peter 4:10
Hope’s Food Pantry Hours for June 16th and June 23rd will be 9:30 am – 11:30 am every Wednesday. Starting June 30th, our Summer Hours will be 8:30 am – 10:30 am. If you have any questions, please email office@hoperiverside.org. Thank you.

Hope’s Food Pantry has been blessed by the generosity of so many in our Church and Community. And we extend the biggest THANK YOU to our tireless volunteers, and the many community partners we have worked with over the last year.
With the ending of the CARES Act, some of our incoming donations are ending as well.

But the need is growing.
We are serving 85+ families a week regularly. Please consider donating shelf-stable food items, pantry staples, and hygiene products if you are able.

For more information, or if you are interested in volunteering, please contact office@hoperiverside.org and we will get you connected with the Outreach Team.

It is an honor to be able to witness the body of Christ serving the community, and each other.

Hope Lutheran Church has a small food pantry run by a dedicated group of volunteers. Donations have been received from not only within the community, but from across the world and across all faiths.

During the COVID-19 period, the Pantry will be open on Wednesdays from 9:30 am- 11:30 am in the building located on the breezeway between the gates. The gates will open at 9:30 am. We ask that you not line up closely prior to opening in order to keep proper social distancing.

Precautions will be taken to minimize contact between volunteers and the public. We ask that you help us keep everyone healthy by only sending one member per family, wear a mask and gloves if you have them, wash your hands before coming, and maintain good 6 feet of social distancing. We appreciate your cooperation.

If you have any extra to share with the community, please consider donating. Shelf staples like canned veggies and fruits, rice, beans, oil/shortening, canned meats, pastas, etc are all needed. There has also been an increase in need for baby products such as wipes and diapers, formula, and powdered milk. Volunteers are needed!

Thank you for being part of our community.
