In August 2007, New Hope partnered with Sacramento Bread of Life to create The Gift of Groceries (TGOG). This ministry runs entirely on donations. Every dollar donated is used to acquire, transport, and distribute food. We provide every recipient with enough food to last a family of four for about three days. Since 2007 TGOG has distributed over 5 million pounds of groceries to over 470,000 people. We also want to feed spiritual hunger. Volunteers are ready to pray for any specific requests recipients have.
USDA distributions are provided on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month which includes items such as canned food, dry goods, juice, meats and dairy products. Visitors can also apply for CalFresh benefits before or during our Thursday distribution (between the hours of 1-3pm.) If you qualify, CalFresh will issue a EBT card used to purchase food from local stores then add funds to your account each month. CalFresh representatives are available to help you sign up.
The Gift of Groceries also offers a free clothing distribution at our clothing ministry, “Blessings” which is open every Thursday during our food distributions.
