The story of HOPE

Nacogdoches Helping Other People Eat - Food Pantry

Established in 1994, HOPE provides supplemental food to Nacogdoches County residents in need. Families and individuals can visit the pantry once a month to obtain food. HOPE serves senior citizens, children, persons with disabilities, veterans, persons living is situational poverty, and others.

Nacogdoches HOPE is now in a new building, which was made possible by a generous, one-time donation.  HOPE is a client choice food pantry, which allows individuals to select the food most appropriate for their dietary needs and storage.

In partnership with the East Texas Food Bank, HOPE is enabled to acquire food for a fraction of the retail price.  HOPE participates in food-rescue partnerships with local grocers to provide recipients with fresh and healthy food choice options.

Nacogdoches HOPE is a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization that is supported through donations from the community.

A group of JAMP (Joint Admission Medical Program) students came from various towns and cities throughout Texas to SFA for a week.  HOPE was fortunate to be the recipient of one of their Community Service Projects. After a short orientation provided by speakers, HOPE president Matthew Gallagher, Brad McWhorter, RN at Medical Center, and SFA Social Work professor Wilma Cordova the students went right to work.
