People Helping People in Hernando, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charitable corporation founded in 2009 by a diverse group of dedicated volunteers. We are an interfaith organization and do not promote a religious affiliation. PHP relies entirely on donations and grants from individuals, businesses, religious groups, clubs, and civic organizations to sustain its mission of alleviating hunger in Hernando County, Florida.
Our Core Programs
Our original program that was established to provide a meal for anyone who needs a nutritious hot meal, served with dignity. Our primary recipients are the elderly, the unemployed and families.
With 71% of our elementary and middle school children on free and reduced meals, we established this backpack program to provide weekend food for those kids who the school determines as the most needy.
Senior Blessings - Many elderly citizens in Hernando County try to get by on meager Social Security checks. Often by the end of the month, they often need our supplemental food to make it until the first of the following month.
Our newest program provides food for those individuals who are living in the woods, in their cars or in someone's garage or shed. Besides food, we provide shelter, toiletries, camp stoves and basic necessities for the most vulnerable in the county.
