The Mission of H.O.P.E.

Winston-Salem is one of the top cities in the entire United States for hunger in families with children. North Carolina and Louisiana are now the top states for hunger in children ages 0-4. One of every four children in North Carolina has insufficient food to meet nutritional needs!

Our mission

is to use community-wide volunteer support to prepare and bring nutritious weekend meals to Forsyth County's 40,000 children who are at risk for hunger. You can help!
