Seeds of Hope, Inc, is located in Florida and is primarily funded through the FishHawk Turkey Trot which provides food assistance for our community for a year. What started as a simple concept has grown exponentially but the basic idea has remained. The mission of Seeds of Hope, Inc. is to provide help to local people in need and meaningful community service hours for students.
Seeds of Hope, Inc., based in Lithia, Florida, and has three main ways of distributing food; through a mobile pantry for local residents, through a once a week distribution open to all, and through the backpack of food program coordinated with local schools.
In addition, the food bank offers major food distributions aimed at helping families with children before long school breaks (Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter). Boxes of food are given to those families to help sustain them during the holiday.
Seeds of Hope, Inc. includes timely donation drives which are organized by students: shoe giveaways during back-to- school, sweatshirt giveaways during November, and blanket giveaways during December.
We hope that the seeds of hope and of service we plant today will lead to a brighter future tomorrow for all of our children!
