Many families in our community face food insecurity or lack the provisions necessary to live a healthy life.

Our ESSENTIAL SERVICES program provides our neighbors with healthy food and other necessities in times of urgent need.  


The Center of Hope provides food and clothing to meet basic needs for over 5,000 families per year through Center of Hope Whitehall. Today, the Center of Hope Knox County chapter provides essential services to our rural neighbors in Knox County and the surrounding communities (parts of Licking, Coshocton, and Holmes counties).  


Our first Knox County location recently opened in Bladensburg, Ohio!  Our Essential Services program serves individuals on a weekly basis, providing a monthly provision pack and weekly fresh food distribution.
