Thank you for visiting Nourishing Hope!
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!

“I get the help I need to improve the lives of my whole family. After I pay my rent and utility bills, I have nothing left over. Nourishing Hope made it possible for me to feed my girls and have enough left over to pay for my car repairs.”
