The MISSION OF HOPE, located in Dora, Alabama, provides food and clothing to those in need. Our programs are all directed toward the hope that we can keep hunger and economic desperation at the lowest possible level.
The Mission of Hope distributes 12,000 pounds of food to 1,000 Walker County, AL and Jefferson County, AL residents each month. Food giveaways are on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month. The gospel is shared by area ministers at each food giveaway.
Alabama has the 2nd highest food hardship rate in the nation. In Walker County alone, more than 10,000 people do not know where their next meal will come from. More than 75,000 families have come to Mission of Hope since we opened in 1992. Most of them never needed a food bank until an unexpected event or situation left them in financial distress. They are nervous, worried and unsure of what to do. They come to us, not looking for a hand out, but for a hand to lift them up from a crisis.
People in your community are hungry. Mission of Hope is serving more and more families in Walker and Jefferson County each month.
They need hope. You can help by:

"For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me. Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me."
