Lake Weir Campus Food Pantry

Hope Lutheran Church operates a food pantry at Hope Lake Weir Campus every Thursday from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The Food Pantry serves Individuals and families in need providing them with shelf-stable food, meat, bread, toiletries and pet food.   


The Pantry has been in operation for 4 years and has over 400 registered families. With the generosity of Hope members and the community, we are able to serve 125 to 190 families weekly, giving out over 250 bags of food. In 2022, the Pantry served 6,436 families, which includes over 22,000 individuals. The food pantry is staffed by Debbie Schuettler, Operations Manager, and dedicated volunteers.
