Hands4Hope - Youth Making A Difference





 The mission of the Hands4Hope Emergency Food Pantry is to provide families experiencing food insecurity on the western slope of El Dorado County with nourishing food and nutrition education. The Emergency Food Pantry Committee works to develop and maintain the processes of running a food pantry to support families in need while working with partner agencies such as the El Dorado County Office of Education and Twin Lakes and Placer Food Banks. The committee is responsible for the collection of non perishable, nourishing food through  planning and hosting food drives within the community. In addition, the committee also  manages all operations of the pantry located within the Hands4Hope Placerville Youth Center.
