The Food Bank at Hope Commons Church

Open Mondays at 5PM from the right side of the building

Could you use some help feeding your family? We give out bags of food designed to make a few complete meals. Anyone can pick up a bag at 5PM from the Family Ministry Center down the right hand side of the church building.

Where does the food come from?

The food we give away comes from several sources. We buy food by the pound from the Butte County Food Bank in Oroville, and we receive bread and some fresh produce from Chico Gleaners. After that, whatever we still need we get from Winco. Additionally, food comes from folks who like to give from a specific list, since we have  carefully designed the bags to hold specific meals.

You can be a part of this dynamic program!

There are two ways to donate to the food bank. First, you can donate money to go towards purchasing exactly what is needed for the week. You can do that on our website, or by Text-to-Give with the keyword “food”. (If you have never done that before, just  send a text message to 84321. In the message, put the amount you want to give and  "food". You will receive simple instructions for what to do next.) As always, you can designate any gift with an envelope in the security box on the back wall of the sanctuary.

Second, you can use this guide when you are picking up your own groceries for the food bank.
These are the specific food items we can accept:
Cup of Noodles
