Mission Of HopeLoving God . . . Loving People . . . Changing Our World
So that alleviating poverty in our community can become reality.
Mission of Hope
Have you ever stopped to think about how many people are in need in our community? Mission of Hope is a ministry of Silver Creek Fellowship that started as an outreach to the homeless by serving meals under the Center Street Bridge and has now become a mobile food bank and food pantry serving Silverton and Southeast Salem. Through our partnership with Marion Polk Food Share, we have distributed thousands of pounds of food to those in need.
Mission of Hope is the highlight of my week. God is with us each week as we feed, care, and pray for the people in our community.
How Can I Get Involved?
Mobile Food Bank
Most food banks operate during normal business hours making it difficult for those who may need food support access these services. MOH distributes on Saturdays and Wednesday to make the resource more accessible. On distribution days, a team of volunteers transports food to the distribution site and sets up tables and displays the food that is available and check people in. Food is made available on the basis of income and family size and no one is turned away. After distribution remaining food is packed up and returned to the MOH warehouse. We also serve the third Saturday of each month from SCF, as well as every Wednesday. Contact Steve Tipton if you would like to serve!
We distribute food to those in need at Silver Creek Fellowship on the 3rd Saturday of each month. The distribution is from 9 am – 12 pm. Volunteers arrive at 8:45 am. We also serve families on Wednesdays from 2 pm – 5 pm at our warehouse (limited to one visit per month).
Houck Middle School
We distribute food at Houck Middle School, 1155 Connecticut SE, Salem, OR the last Saturday of each month. The distribution is from 10 am – 12 pm. Volunteers arrive at 8:30 am.
