Sunday Blessings

People Helping People's oldest program to help end hunger in Hernando County is known as Sunday Blessings. People Helping People serves a free meal for the needy every week through its Sunday Blessings Program, the original program offered by PHP. Some of our guests are homeless, some are elderly people whose only income is Social Security, and some are working people with large families and modest incomes.  All who are in need are welcome at our Sunday Dinners.
