Food for Hope’s objective is to provide middle school and high school youth with food to take home each evening, during holiday breaks and summer via a normal looking backpack to be able to provide a quick and easy meal for themselves and their families. 


Food for Hope is able to sustain the current needs of the below mentioned schools through donations that are received from the congregation members at SunRise and the American Heritage Girls. 

Our Mission.

Food for Hope is a Youth Outreach Program that provides non-perishable food items for the youth in need within the communities of the shadow of our steeple and beyond. This ministry focuses on middle and high school youth and their families who have been identified by the schools and/or organizations as being in need of food. 


Food for Hope is currently run by volunteers with no staff members assigned. Andrea Filla leads the ministry and coordinates with SunRise on a monthly basis the need for materials in the bulletin, mission porch and organizes the food.

Each school/organization has a volunteer assigned to it as the liaison between Andrea and the individual schools. This volunteer communicates with the school to determine their current needs and relays those needs back to Andrea. The volunteer also coordinates delivery of the food to the schools each month.

In order to continue to expand, new volunteers need to be identified and assigned to the new schools.  If you are interested in joining the Food for Hope ministry as a volunteer, please contact info@sunrisefamily.org or fill out a Connect Card in the black book during a weekend worship service
