Engage Food Pantry
In 2015 the Hopewell location moved to the primary Chester church site where we are now, with a focus on food distribution, personal hygiene needs, and clothing giveaways. Today, we are still thriving and helping the hungry. In 2020, our pantry reached families, seniors, and shut-ins that were drastically affected by COVID-19 and job loss. Many people who had never visited a pantry before were anxious and embarrassed coming for help. However, thanks to our wonderful caring volunteers, they left feeling loved and blessed with so much food and toiletries that they were overjoyed with tears.
One of the unique aspects of our pantry is our volunteer staff that come to us from different faiths, churches, colleges, and all walks of life. They are committed to minister to the shared vision of helping feed our communities and loving all people. We have had the honor of touching lives during the most challenging time in history. Our goal for our new location is to continue to reach our community one meal at a time and to reestablish our community referral resource center.
