Through these donations, we are able to consistently provide more than 300 bags of food each month to people who might otherwise go hungry. Additionally, if you shop at Kroger or Tom Thumb and participate in their community rewards programs that name Cathedral of Hope as beneficiary, we receive 1% of sales each quarter.Join the Facebook event for Pack the Pantry

Our goal is to let people living on the streets know they are not forgotten by graciously offering “A Taste of Hope”. The meal we serve is similar to a meal we would serve guests in our home. However, our program is not about “feeding the homeless.” It is about connecting with the people we serve, even for just a few moments. To reassure them that people do care about them.

Blessing Bags are gallon-size Ziploc® bags that contain snacks, travel-size toiletries, socks, a bottle of water, grooming supplies, and other items that people who live on the street find useful.

Items on the list are purchased during the week and brought back the second Wednesday of the month, and those who are interested are invited to take a few bags with them to keep on hand in their cars.
