HOPE is a 'Pantry of Choice'
Nacogdoches HOPE has implemented several safety protocols to be able to remain open as a 'Pantry of Choice' where clients can choose the food items they prefer. In addition, this policy helps to reduces food waste.

Grant to help Evening Operations
The National Junior Forum awarded a $5000 grant to fund food for HOPE's evening operation. HOPE is the only food pantry in the county to distribute food in the evening. The grant also includes members of the Nacogdoches Chapter of the NJF volunteering at HOPE.

The renovation of HOPE's Resource Building is moving forward!
Nacogdoches HOPE is in the process of doing various foundation, driveway and interior renovations to the 'new' HOPE Resource building. There have been several unavoidable delays due mainly to weather but the project is moving forward now!
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 help purchase and begin renovations to the brick building next to the food pantry. The goal is to help increase the number of individuals who can be served, expand services and improve efficiency.
