Pantry Mission


"To lead and engage our community in the fight against hunger"

Essence of Hope  is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization which alleviates hunger and poverty by providing food to people in need.  

We are a private non-profit organization and are not a part of county government. We work to educate the public about the nature of hunger and poverty.  

We recognize the need for emergency and supplemental food programs and of other non-profit organizations that meet the critical needs of low-income families. 

We strive to provide our services with compassion and respect for the dignity of the client.
