Pike County Hands of Hope Monthly Food Distribution Stats
For the first quarter of 2020, the Pike County Hands of Hope Monthly Food Distribution experienced a steady number of families and households served with a slight uptick in March 2020.
Beginning in March, the time for distribution was changed from a 2pm start time to a 3pm start time. This change was required in order to allow volunteers enough time to unload the food delivery truck and set up tables for distribution.
The 3pm – 6pm time for distribution is now the permanent time. The food distribution occurs on the 2nd Thursday of each month.
Overall, there were 188 households served and blessed by our food distribution. Approximately 5,000 pounds of food is given to area families every month. Breakdown of the age groups served are as follows:
ADULTS : 252
The grand total of persons served during the 1st Quarter 2020 is 653.
The Pike County Hands of Hope Monthly Food Distribution occurs on the 2nd Thursday of every month from 3pm – 6pm. We operate in partnership with Lords Valley Community Church and Second Harvest Food Bank.
