Jo's Diner

Unfortunately, our Kitchen of HOPE is temporarily closed until further notice. 

They call me Goodie. I am a HOPE volunteer Team Leader who enjoys working with all kinds of folks. 

Each week I volunteer at HOPE coordinating volunteers, food distribution, and restocking.  I especially enjoy greeting clients and children.  Retirement has never been a word I would say describes my life.

I have been blessed with family, friends and plenty of food.  Nacogdoches HOPE has been a way I can give back to my community and work with some really awesome individuals each week.  Although it can be a little crazy up here on Monday and Thursdays mornings it is really a lot of fun.


When I was 7 years old I used to have to walk to the bus stop hungry early in the mornings because my mother had to go to her low paying job. My whole life I triumphed alone through my struggle with no help. I kept faith that one day I wouldn’t be hungry anymore, and now that it is time to eat it’s also time to help.


When I look into the mirror with my envelope in my hand, I realize that I have become the HOPE of one family because I can see them in my reflection.

We are always looking for volunteers who are willing to serve Nacogdoches residents in need.
