Moments of Hope OutreachThe mission of Moments of Hope Outreach is to give Hope to neighbors experiencing homelessness and those living in poverty in the Richmond area, by providing weekly healthy meals, life-sustaining supplies, health screenings, and connecting them with local, state, and federal health, housing and employment resources. We provide a safe organized environment for charitable groups and families to give back to their community in ways that are impactful for everyone involved.

Since November 2015, we've hosted weekly Saturday Servings community outreach events in the Richmond area. Our partner churches & businesses prepare a delicious hot meal and serve it to 250-300+ struggling neighbors from the surrounding communities & counties. We've registered 1,211 households or 2,304 individuals in the last twelve months, and we're growing rapidly.
We served 3,639 meals in 2016, 6,469 in 2017, and 10,884 so far in 2018, and we're adding 30-50 first-time guests each week. Many would not have had a meal the day they joined us had we not provided it.
Our Mo Hope Mobile Pantry distributes 1,750 cans of food each week at these events, along with boxed pasta; purchased solely with donated funds, and bread, farm-fresh eggs, fruit & vegetables when available. Our budget for 2019 includes $41,600 for canned goods and boxed pasta. We also distribute roughly 350 rolls of toilet paper, toothbrushes, toothpastes, combs, razors, shampoos, bars of soap, deodorants and lip balm each week. Our 2019 budget includes $32,100 for toiletries.
We would greatly appreciate your helping in funding the food and toiletry items we provide through our Mo Hope Mobile Pantry!
