About Us

BOH Outreach Blessings of Hope is a food distribution warehouse that was set up to allow large food distributors to efficiently donate their excess product to be distributed to impact the community.

The Vision

BOH4 The vision for Blessings of Hope came about after we were told, numerous times, by food distribution warehouse managers, there is a need for somewhere that they can donate full semi loads of product and know that it will be redistributed to smaller food ministries, outreaches, and the needy in the community.

 

In 2017 Blessings of Hope distributed over 6.4 million pounds of food to other food banks, ministries, churches, and families. This is approximately 215 semi-truckloads of food!

Statistics show:

  • America produces twice as much food per person as needed
  • More than 40% of food produced in America is not eaten, that amounts to over 29 million tons of food wasted each year.
  • Nationwide, food makes up 17% of what we send to landfills
  • Wasted food costs America OVER $100 Billion annually
  • In 2008 nearly 50 million people in America -including almost one child in four- struggled to get enough to eat
  • 1 out of every 6 Americans are at risk for hunger

The Mission

BOH Cooler The Mission for Blessings of Hope is to provide a place where large corporations can donate to the community.
