Customers have a variety of choices. We provide fresh foods such as bakery items, fruit and vegetables, non-perishables, meat, and other frozen products.

Who can come?

Seeds of Hope serves those in need living in the local community surrounding the Dresher area. Please call to check if your zip code is included in our service area.

How often may I visit?

One member per household is welcome to visit and receive groceries once every other week. Please refer to the pantry calendar. Schedules are based on the first letter of your last name (ex. John Smith can visit the pantry one day during a “K-Z” week).

Partner with us

Seeds of Hope Food Pantry located in Dresher, serves a variety of people from all walks of life. We are so thankful for the opportunity to share this important ministry with the many people who come across our path each week. Thank you for taking the time to learn a little more about the heartbeat of Seeds of Hope. We hope that you will partner with us to help those in need within our local community.

When we began in 2008, Seeds of Hope was a small Food Cupboard assisting approximately twenty to thirty families a week. Today, through our partnerships with Philabundance and Feeding America, and with the help of over 50 volunteers, nearly 1000 families a month are being supplied with food. While the changes that come with rapid growth have been challenging, the heart of Seeds of Hope has stayed constant and has only been strengthened. We strive to serve the increasing number of those in need by adapting, expanding, and increasing our resources.

Providing people with nutritional fulfillment has blessed us with the experience of much greater fulfillment. Food may seem to be the big picture, but as we take a closer look we know that it is just a glimpse of a greater need to share life together. So many of us take for granted the opportunity to provide food for our families, but for many here in our community that is not the case. Knowing that so many friends and neighbors care can be a great source of encouragement.

At Seeds of Hope, we want to continue to saturate our community with our food, our time, our energy, and our resources. Most importantly we want to plant seeds of hope into the hearts of the people we serve. One thing we have learned along the way is that we cannot walk this journey alone. Please accept this invitation to partner with us as we strive to ensure the individuals we serve receive much needed resources.
