Get fresh, nutritious food at your local library!

Hope Street Food Pantry is thrilled to announce a new partnership with the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library to bring convenient food dist­ributions directly to neighborhood libraries throughout Mecklenburg County. Starting in March, we’ll be setting up shop at a different library branch every month.

Why? Because we believe everyone deserves access to healthy food, regardless of their circumstances. This partnership allows us to reach residents facing food insecurity in neighborhoods where they already feel comfortable and welcome.

Here’s the scoop:

  • When: Every month, from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM.
  • Where: Check the schedule below for upcoming locations!
  • Who: Everyone is welcome! No referral, appointment, ID, or paperwork required.
  • How often: Households can receive food from Hope Street once a week at any distribution.
  • New households: Please send a representative to their first event to set up a quick profile.

Mark your calendar for these upcoming library stops:

  • March 19th: Allegra Westbrooks (2412 Beatties Ford Rd, Charlotte, NC 28216)
  • April 16th: Hickory Grove (5935 Hickory Grove Rd, Charlotte, NC 28215)
  • May 21st: Sugar Creek (4045 N Tryon St suite a, Charlotte, NC 28206)
