Hope Kitchen is a Christ-inspired, community effort to feed the hungry in and around Neosho, Missouri. We opened our doors in November 2015. Our goal is to serve anyone who feels that a meal would be a benefit to them or their family, regardless of age, social, economic, or physical status. The heart behind Hope Kitchen is to meet the very simple and practical reality of hunger while using food as an avenue to build relationships and share the love of Jesus Christ to all we encounter.
It is our desire to serve those in need whether it be a single parent, the homeless, lonely elderly who desire relationship, grandparents raising their grandchildren, and even the working poor who are trying to make ends meet.
Our volunteers are the backbone of this ministry and work very hard to make sure each guest is fed a delicious, hot meal, while making everyone feel welcome. While open three nights each week, we are averaging over 100 guests each night.
As a "diner-style" soup kitchen, various expenses are involved in the daily operation of this ministry and Hope Kitchen is no exception to the rule.
Each year in April, we host a fundraising banquet in order to raise our annual operating budget. This year, with the COVID-19 crisis in our country and around the world, WE HAD NO CHOICE but to cancel our banquet. We are asking our community and Hope Kitchen supporters to give in a new way. The GoFundMe platform, gives YOU an opportunity to make a direct impact on the day to day operations of Hope Kitchen.
Thank you for showing your support by donating financially to this vital community ministry.
