Meals of Hope

Meals of Hope

We care that households and individuals are having to choose between food for themselves & their family or shelter, utilities, or medical costs. Food should not be a luxury, it is a necessity, a basic need. We are feeding stomachs AND feeding the souls of our guests.

Each meal is balanced, delicious, and is created, rather than poured out of a can. We doubled the number of meals served every week in 2020, serving over 58,000 lbs in food and meals to food insecure and homeless individuals and families. We are on track to double the amount of food and meals served in 2021.

Last year, more than 58K lbs. of food/meals were served

Mobile Food Program

Many do not have transportation, the physical ability, or access to stationary food programs. In 2020, Meals of Hope shifted from a stationary food program to a food truck that gives us the ability to meet people at their point of need by serving fresh meals in low income and at-risk communities throughout Dallas.

Dallas Hope Charities addresses the need of food insecurity by providing meals to individuals that would otherwise go without.

Sustainable Food

In addition to the warm meal provided at our mobile food programs, tables are stocked with food for individuals to take as needed.

Worthy Bags™

Dallas Hope Charities was able to distribute $34,000+ worth of Worthy Bags™ in 2020 through Meals of Hope. Learn more on the Worthy Bags™ program page.
