The Expansion is Underway
The pantry is in the process of doing various infrastructure, and foundational drainage renovations to the building which have been delayed by continued rain but it is moving forward.
Nacogdoches Helping Other People Eat food pantry is expanding thanks to a grant that involves a collaboration with three SFA schools.
Nacogdoches HOPE is using the funding from a large fiscal year 2021 Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge grant awarded by the East Texas Food Bank to purchase a building and property next to the food pantry. This will help increase the number of individuals who can be served, expand services and improve efficiency.
Nacogdoches HOPE now has a garden planted next to its newly purchased building! Thanks to Irene Howard, ETFB Pantry Specialist, for bringing plants donated by Blue Moon Nursery in Edom, Texas, and to HOPE volunteers Matthew Gallagher, Vance Rogers, Bruce McNellie, Steve Poston, and Jonathan Gasit for planting the garden.
