Home > Ways to help! > Be a Helping Heart Partner

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Hope Food Pantry Austin Helping Heart Partner. Our mission is to help alleviate hunger in the community to meet the immediate needs of our neighbors experiencing food insecurity.  Your generosity gives our shoppers the empowerment of choice, dignity, and above all hope. The following are ways to get involved:

Caring Partner Organize a one time food drive on your own or with friends, at your office, with your book club, at church, during a special occasion like a birthday party, or donate $100. In appreciation the group will receive an acknowledgement on social media.

Or fill tote bags full of food to send out to school kids who are experiencing food insecurity at chosen economically disadvantaged AISD schools. In appreciation the group will receive an acknowledgement on social media.

Sustaining Partner Schedule and organize two food drives throughout the year or donate $500 which will be used to purchase meat and eggs. In appreciation for your donation the group will receive an acknowledgement on social media and the group can reserve one service activity of distributing food.  Details follow scheduling.

Nurturing Partner Organize three or more food drives scheduled throughout the year or donate $1000 which will be used to purchase staples such as rice, beans, pasta, and tuna.  In appreciation for your donation the group will receive an acknowledgement on social media and your group can reserve two service activities of distributing food. Details follow scheduling.

Any food drive over 500 pounds (think 500 cans of soup), the partner is welcome to schedule a service activity on the day of delivering the collection and have 10-15 volunteers come help sort and stock the donated items.   The amount of food over the number of volunteers determines the amount of time it takes to finish the task.

A distribution service activity can be scheduled on Thursday or Friday morning from 8:30 – 11:30 a.m. for about 10-15 volunteers.  If you have less than that I am able to fill in with other partner volunteers.
