HANDS OF HOPE
Hands of Hope Food Pantry is a not-for-profit ministry of Evangel Church that serves families who are in need in Hanover Park and surrounding communities. It was founded on Nov. 1, 2000 when we opened the doors for the very first time to those in need. We started by distributing food to 6 families the first week. Since then, we have seen a great increase in the needs of the community as well as in our efforts to make a difference in people's lives. We now serve approximately 130 families on a weekly basis. We distribute nearly $1,000,000 worth of food a year. We have a strong partnership with the Northern Illinois Food Bank, local grocers, restaurants, and bakeries. We would love for you to partner with us in our efforts.
"Our clients have a chance to use shopping carts to select the foods made available to them. We strive to guard every person’s dignity and self-respect by giving them a shopping experience."
