We’re a local charity based in Bournemouth, set up and run entirely by volunteers.

Founded with the aim of providing life's basic essentials to the people most in need, we continue working to make life better for the homeless and families living in poverty in our area.

About Us
Our Core Value.
Our Foundation.

The current economic climate continues to make life challenging for both our clients and the charity itself. Despite an increasing demand for our help, rising costs and a serious fall in donations, Hope for Food continues to support those in need.

At our Community Meals we are feeding on average 140 people per week and supplying them with clothing and other essentials.The number of families referred to us for food parcels and other support is steadily rising.

Everything we do is only possible because of donations we receive from local businesses, churches, schools, families and individuals. Nobody gets paid and we receive no financial support from the Government or local authority. Times are hard for so many and we’re grateful to all our donors, supporters and volunteers who enable us to support the vulnerable in our community.
