Executive Director's report

Can you believe that children have returned to school and Fall is approaching? The older we get, the faster time goes, it seems.

Our Weekend Blessings program is starting back up and we expect that our volunteers will put together around 650 bags a week. That's an astounding number and requires a lot of people to make it happen. I am so grateful for our volunteers because there is no way we could feed the community without them all. If you know of a child who needs a bag of food to carry them through the weekend, please let us know.

We try to help anyone around our county who needs an extra meal or two. Whether it's a senior citizen, a person without a home, or a child, we want to be able to provide meals for them. We have an abundance of food in our country, no one should go hungry. If you see a person in need, please let them know that they can come by here for a meal on Tuesday and Friday at 11:30 and Sunday at 3:30 pm.

And anyone can come by our drive-through mobile food distribution on the last Wednesday of the month. We start at 10:30 am and are generally done by 11:00. The food varies and we have no guarantees of what we'll have or give away. Bring your neighbor along to get some for them, too. Please follow our Facebook page to get notified of when we have food that is available for pick up. As we're not a food pantry with a specific pick-up time, we do get donations but try to give them away as soon as we can. 

If you're not familiar with our services or programs, feel free to take a look at the Programs tab above and click on any one page.

With warmest regards,
Becky Burton, Executive Director

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,  please fill out the form for our calendar or contact Becky at (352) 686-4466 or
