About Us

With your help, Hope 4 The Heart received over $650,000 in grants and donations from the county, local businesses, and foundations to rebuild our beautiful, new 5,000 square foot food storage warehouse.

Our need this coming year is to raise $500,000 for refrigeration, pallet shelving, lighting, fencing, and landscaping, and the purchase of additional property. We hope you will help. Any amount, however small, is welcome. Donors will be recognized on our “Wall of Hope” in our warehouse entryway.

Hope 4 the Heart is a California nonprofit providing food, produce, diapers, and household items to local families who are experiencing food insecurity. We also distribute pallets of food to over 100 churches, schools, and nonprofit organizations every week, free of charge. We believe that no one need go hungry in our food rich nation! Almost all of our emergency food client families have children to feed. Amazingly, we are able reach an estimated 11,000 families a month with food and product valued at over $15,000,000 a year.

Thank you for your support, and your heart to care for the children and families who need a helping hand.

In gratitude for your compassion,

Victoria Popejoy
Executive Director
