Hope Community Church hosts a food pantry, at our Raleigh campus, on Mondays, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and Wednesdays, 4:00-7:00 p.m. It’s open to the public. Volunteers are needed to help provide food, prayer and to share the love of Jesus Christ with every one that comes to us for help.

The Food Distribution Center is where our donations go each month to help supply the needs for our Food Pantry and BackPack Buddies ministries. The Distribution Center is at the Morrisville campus, and weekly volunteers are needed to sort the supplies. This is a great opportunity to serve with kids seven years and older!
