Why Should I Get Involved?

Food insecurity is an issue that plagues every community. No matter if you live near the Rocky Mountains or near the Gulf of Mexico, there are families in your community who can use your help right now.

Meals of Hope was founded to help people like you get involved in the fight against hunger – and there are plenty of ways to get involved! Whether it’s through our food packing events, which bring hundreds of people together to pack over 1 million meals in the span of two hours, or through our mobile food pantry, or afterschool meal programs, which serves the communities of Southwest Florida.

There are plenty of ways to help – and we need your help.

Mobile Pantry Volunteer

Our weekly mobile pantries need volunteers. This is your chance to see where the meals packed go, and to get that warm fuzzy feeling from interacting and helping those who are hungry in our community. You will also get to be a part of the team that runs the largest food panty in Collier County. Volunteers for the Mobile Food Pantry Trucks need to arrive I hour before the distribution starts and stay the full 3 hours. Volunteers must wear closed-toe shoes.

Donate Food

Our food pantries are always in need of food, and a food donation from you could make a big difference. Find out how you can donate food by clicking the button below!
