It’s a Tad Crowded

Every day at 1pm, 1:30pm on Sunday, our kitchen is host to our SoupLine program.

SoupLine is a free lunch experience for anyone in the community who needs a hot meal for free.

Five minutes before lunch is served, a Hope Center staff person leads a small devotional with an inspirational or motivational message followed by prayer.

As the economy continues to struggle, our numbers have been on the increase. We feed all types of people each day at SoupLine. From single men & women, to families and young adults, our kitchen has been busting at the seams.

As this economy keeps making it more difficult for people to afford food in addition to other expenses, we believe that our numbers will continue to rise. Unfortunately, we are already hitting capacity.

Now is the time that we start looking for new solutions to our dining issues. We’re beginning to look for options to expand to allow us more opportunity to reach people’s physical needs so that we can touch their spiritual needs as well.

As we begin to explore different options for the future of our food services ministry, please continue to support us as we feed hundreds of hungry people a week. Your continued financial support helps to keep our kitchen open for our daily guests. And any food donations help to keep our pantry stocked, not just for our residents or guests but also hungry families in desperate need of groceries.

While at the grocery store this weekend, why not pick up some extra items to donate to The Hope Center? We are always in need of these items:

  • Peanut butter (16 oz)
  • Sugar
  • Creamer
  • Spaghetti
  • Spaghetti sauce
  • Rice
  • Egg Noodles

If you are interested in donating items for our pantry or organizing a food drive, please call 301.739.1165 or email hagerstownrescue@verizon.net for detailed info.
