In August 2007, New Hope partnered with Sacramento Bread of Life to create The Gift of Groceries. This ministry runs entirely on donations. Every dollar donated is used to acquire, transport, and distribute food. We try to provide every recipient with enough food to last a family of four for about three days.  We also want to feed spiritual hunger. A short message and prayer are given before every food distribution. Volunteers are ready to pray for any specific requests recipients have.

 

A special USDA distribution is provided on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month. These include special USDA items such as canned food, dry goods, juice, meats and dairy products.  Visitors can also apply for CalFresh benefits before our during Thursday distribution (Between the hours of 1-3:30, or until we run out of food.) IF you qualify, CalFresh will issue a free EBT card to purchase food from local stores and will add additional funds to your account each month. CalFresh representatives are available to help you sign up.
