The Sunnybrook Hope Center opened its doors in 2020 right before Covid-19 hit the
United States, forcing everyone to rethink common lifestyle choices. The volunteers at the
Sunnybrook Hope Center work to create a welcoming environment for the residents of
Woodbury, Monona, Plymouth, Dakota, and Union counties to receive practical and consistent assistance. With more than 150 volunteers the Hope center serves 1,000 households in the community each month.
Because the Hope Center opened during unprecedented times, it had to begin with a
less personalized drive-through approach. They soon learned to provide support working
around the limitations presented by the pandemic. Since then they have been able to transition into a traditional choice style, shopping-based pantry, they have been able to people in a much more personal way.
“Our goal is to walk alongside our guests to learn, grow, and obtain a more sustainable life.” Tina Stroud said when asked about the pantry.
The Food Bank of Siouxland values our partnership with the Sunnybrook Hope Center and their support of the community. Sunnybrook Hope Center makes a huge impact
for those in need in our community and we appreciate the hard work and dedication of their staff and volunteers.
