Food Subsidy Program

Project HOPE Food Bank hosts a Food Subsidy Program designed to promote health and well-being by closing the nutritional gaps caused by food insecurity. Food insecurity is a condition in which individuals and families lack access to enough food to live a healthy life. Nutrition is an essential part of making an impact in people’s lives. This holds true if you are teaching a child to read, helping seniors stay remain independent at home, or giving those in our workforce the ability to reach their full potential.
The Food Subsidy Program resembles a pooling of resources, assisting 50 area non-profits that do not have the assets to purchase or store enormous quantities of food. The Food Bank purchases food wholesale in large lots for the best price. Next, we subsidize the price with our grants and donations to help our non-profit. These partners include homeless shelters, charity kitchens, food pantries, crisis centers, children’s homes, school backpack programs, and kids programs.
