Thank you for visiting Nourishing Hope!

Important update: Beginning the week of July 15, Nourishing Hope’s Sheridan Market will be closed for food distribution on Tuesdays. All other distribution days will remain the same at Sheridan Market. Therapy and case management sessions will be unaffected by this change. We apologize for any inconvenience.

We understand that coming to a food pantry for the first time can sometimes be a difficult or confusing experience, but at Nourishing Hope, we do our best to make you feel welcome and comfortable.

The option of food choice has returned to Sheridan! (Our pre-packaged “Express” distribution will continue to be available if desired.) This process might take a little longer, but we are excited to welcome you inside if you choose. Bonus produce pick-ups will continue to be pre-packaged.

We believe you deserve to eat well and eat what you want. Come visit us and find the food you need. Are you a new client? Save time by pre-registering here!
