The Hope Calendar

The Hope Calendar is an ongoing campaign which will help provide nearly 100,000 meals in Jeannie's Kitchen over the next year. Won't you consider sponsoring a meal in honor of someone special in your life? Sponsor a supper in honor of a dear friend or breakfast in memory of a beloved relative.

More than 24,000 men, women, and children in Rowan County have trouble putting food on the table. They live in constant uncertainty, not sure where their next meals will come from. Your gifts keep Jeannie's Kitchen operating 7 DAYS A WEEK, 3 MEALS A DAY. Rowan County citizens who have a home but struggle to make ends meet are welcome to enjoy a hot noon meal. 

When you give a gift of $50 of more, you will receive our 2018 HOPE Calendar, a wonderful tradition enjoyed by friends of Rowan Helping Ministries. Contact Karen Taylor at 704-637-6838 ext. 100 or email for more information or to become a sponsor today!


Restore Hope For Those In Need Now

Donor Highlight

Rowan Helping Ministries is blessed to be a part of such a benevolent community full of individuals willing to fight to end hunger and homelessness in Rowan County. As the summer months come to an end and the holiday season is fast approaching, we just wanted to take the time to recognize some recent noteworthy donations to our organization. There are so many ways to get involved and be a part of our cause, ranging anywhere from financial contributions to volunteering to serve a meal. We are able to thrive and prosper thanks to people like you! 

Waste It or Taste It

It's an easy question, right? But when farms, factories, and retailers make this decision it results in billions of pounds of perfectly edible food going to waste.

That's a hard stat to swallow when Americans across the country – even in your community – struggle to put food on the table. How can you help put an end to this needless waste?

Friend, take our Waste It or Taste It quiz now to test your smarts about food waste and make an impact! If you complete the quiz, a generous donor has committed to donating a meal on your behalf to help our food rescue efforts.

We need 5,000 people to take this quiz before April 22 to help fight hunger – take the quiz now >>
