food ministry

The Food Ministry is one of the larger ministries at the Living Hope Church. Since the church’s inception in the late 1800’s - our members have placed a high level of importance on serving our South Lake community. The addition of the Wesley Center to the church campus has allowed us to serve more than ever through missions, Wednesday Night Dinners and Meals on Wheels. 

In 2023 - we served 23,768 meals and 130 clients!

It’s not too early to start planning your event! Please plan ahead to ensure your date is available. Kindly share a few details about your event so we can check availability and follow-up with you.

meals on wheels

Our Food Ministry provides hot and nutritious meals to those in need. We are on a mission to enhance the quality of independent living by providing affordable, home-delivered meals, through a church-supported effort and caring volunteers. If you or someone you know is in need of a meal delivery service regardless of age (such as someone homebound, widow/widower that can’t prepare a meal, someone recuperating from a medical condition), please call 352-243-4016 for more information. 

Meals are prepared at the Wesley Center, and are delivered five days a week. 

Examples of individuals who can receive this service are: 

1. Someone Homebound

2. Family member or caregiver has contacted us on someone’s behalf

3. Widow or Widower that can’t prepare a meal

4. Someone recuperating from a medical condition
