Food Donations

Hope Valley is operated solely by donations and with volunteer staff who dedicate their summer and sleep on the grounds overnight.  The least we can do for them is ensure they get wholesome meals during their stay on the grounds.  There are approximately 135 meals per summer (not including weekends) also prepared by volunteers.  The staff count ranges between 50-75 people at each meal.   Food donations help reduce our operating costs and keep our staff healthy and happy!  The following is a list of food items that are typically needed most during the summer:

  • Boxed Cereals
  • Canned juices or juice boxes
  • Canned meats (i.e. tuna, salmon, ham, etc.)
  • Lunch snacks (i.e. puddings, fruit cups, cookies, granola bars, etc.)
  • Pasta / Rice
  • Pasta sauce / tomato sauce
  • Canned soups (i.e. mushroom, tomato, etc.)
  • Cheese blocks / cheese slices
  • Chips, nachos, snack mixes, etc.
  • Salsa & dips (dried seasonings)
  • Brown paper lunch bags / sandwich bags
  • Napkins

For those who would prefer, money can be contributed toward the purchase of food for staff.

We begin collecting yard sale donations in late March. 

Every year we organize a HUGE YARD SALE, complete with a FOOD TENT and a PLANT SALE during the Victoria Day long weekend.  For more details concerning this years’ event, please visit our Yard Sale page.

You can also help us raise funds by donating any sell-able items you wish to part with such as large and small furniture, working appliances (large and small), clocks, plate sets, cookwares, camping stuff, sporting goods,  computers, flat TVs, electronics, fabrics, rugs, clothing, toys, tools, even plants for the sale!

Unfortunately we cannot accept used toilets, used mattresses of any kind, or large fabric covered sofas.
