About Meals of Hope

The Mission

The Mission of Meals of Hope is “To inspire and empower communities to come together to end hunger.” We believe it is our job to feed people. Meals of Hope began as a meal packing organization, and we are the only meal packing organization with a priority on keeping the food packed within the United States. We developed five meals specifically designed for the American palate with added vitamins, minerals and proteins to supplement an unbalanced diet. Most of our packed meals are donated to the Feeding America Food Bank Network. More than 30,000 volunteers and 18 full and part time staff members assist Meals of Hope in achieving its Mission.
