What's new at PHP


Breaking News!  A special donor just contacted PHP to announce that he will double all ticket sales made from October 1 until October 31 (up to $5000).  This is fantastic news...just buy a $50 ticket to the Hoedown and $100 will be given in total to PHP.  Act now to take advantage of this generous donor.  Or buy an additional $25 tickets for 50/50 and PHP will be credited with $50. How great is this!

Hoedown for the Hungry

We're going virtual with the Hoedown Covid-19 stopped our fundraising, while demand from hungry people for food is increasing. In October, we're planning a fun event that everyone will want to participate in to support the feeding of hungry children, seniors, working poor and homeless in Hernando County.  Since Covid-19 arrived in Hernando County all PHP's fundraising events have been cancelled or postponed.  PHP needs donations, grants and fundraising events to keep feeding the hungry. Support our Virtual HOEDOWN in October 2020. 

Executive Director's report

After six months at PHP, I can honestly say that I've never worked with a more dedicated and hard-working group of volunteers. The Board of Directors and volunteers are very committed to our mission of feeding those who are hungry in Hernando County and I am so proud to tell people that I am the Executive Director at People Helping People in Hernando County! We are blessed to have these big-hearted people in our community as our neighbors.  ~Becky Burton,


PHP's headquarters is located at the HELP Center at 1396 Kass Circle, Spring Hill, 34606. The hours are limited due to COVID-19, so it's best to call (352) 686-4466 to pickup food or to inquire about something you need.  If you need to enter the building, MASKS are required.  If you do not have a mask, we will give you one, as the health department strongly recommends that you wear one inside a building.  

Currently, the HELP Center is open for showers on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9AM until 2PM for homeless individuals.  Appointments must be made before you are allowed to shower at the HELP Center.  Please bring a clean set of clothes to your appointment time for dressing after your shower.  

Need A Kitchen?

Have you been told that you should open a restaurant?  Or that you make an amazing dessert?  You might make the world's best chocolate cheesecake but if you sell it out of your kitchen, you'll be shut down before you know it.  Luckily for you, there's something called an Incubator Kitchen. It's a licensed commercial kitchen for rent on an hourly basis as you need it.  And People Helping People has one in Spring Hill!  With an incubator kitchen you can reserve the kitchen, cook your cheesecake and legally sell your special dessert. PHP Kitchen may be the perfect place to launch a local eating establishment or start a mail-order food business.  The first step is to make an appointment to see PHP's Kitchen and then discuss how it would work for you. See our website page by clicking here or call Becky at (352) 686-4466.

Space for Rent

Our HELP Center has available space to rent to individuals and organizations to accommodate both large and small groups.  The Center has a dining room, multipurpose room, commercial kitchen and restrooms.  The furniture allows for flexible and social distancing during these current times.  The entire space was renovated in the past year and has had little use due to the pandemic.  For information about rental, contact Becky at (352) 686-4466 or
