NHN was established in the fall of 2015 and began serving meals in May 2016.
Selective Food Warehouse, providing our “guests” the opportunity to Shop for their groceries was a goal that is now a reality.
Some other goals of NHN:
- Mobile Food Distribution to reach the rural areas of the county
- Resource Information Hub to connect those in need to other support organizations.
NHN has partnered with over 100 businesses, churches, and organizations to make the realty of food distribution center in Amherst County come true. NHN is expecting to receive over 90% of its funding from the community and will only exist based on concern each individual has for his or her neighbor. NHN’s existence will truly come from Neighbors Helping Neighbors.
"He that have a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth his bread to the poor."~Proverbs 22:9
NHN's journey and mission would not be possible if not for our partners - Thank you!
