What we're doing

The 10th annual Hoedown for the Hungry, with proceeds benefitting People Helping People in Hernando County and its many programs, will take place on Saturday, Oct. 23. Because of the recent uptick in COVID cases in Hernando County, the event will again be virtual.

Although the demand from hungry people for food is increasing, donations are significantly down, so fundraising is even more important. How can you help feed the hungry? Purchase a ticket - individuals $50, couples $75. Become a sponsor. Business sponsors will be recognized on PHP's website, Facebook & souvenir book and receive tax-deductible donation. Place an ad in our Hoedown book. Ads can be used as a tax-deductible advertising expense.

The event will consist of a five-star meal (to go) and opportunity basket drawings. We will publish an advertising book to give out to local businesses and their customers to show those who are supporting our community. Proceeds from the event benefit PHP’s various programs, including Weekend Blessings for students in Hernando County schools; Sunday Blessings community meal; Senior Blessings groceries for seniors in low-income housing; Neighborhood Blessings food, supplies and showers for the homeless and financially impoverished; the computer labs for job searches, benefits enrollment, and GED classes; and a free medical walk-in clinic for the uninsured.

The meal choices are: 

  • Beef Tenderloin with Horseradish Sauce
  • Bacon-Wrapped Jumbo Shrimp stuffed with Deviled Crab
  • Chicken Cordon Bleu wrapped in Bacon
  • Vegetarian Eggplant Parmesan


Any help you can give is greatly appreciated as PHP continues to take a bite out of hunger in Hernando County! If you need more information, please email admin@phphernando.org or call 352-686-4466.

Direct your donations to a specific program

Pick one of our four programs for your donation to be credited to by clicking the "Donate" below the program description.

       Weekend Blessings

During 2019, PHP filled backpacks that fed over 650 hungry children each week. These children were selected by Hernando schools as food insecure to receive a backpack of food every weekend.  A donation of $150 would feed a child for the entire school year, but any amount would help. 

        Sunday Blessing

Since 2009, PHP has provided a hot meal each week to food insecure families and individuals.  Each Sunday afternoon, a group of volunteers serve a hot meal to anyone who comes to the HELP Center.  Most meals are provided by restaurants, clubs and organizations. 

    Senior Blessings

Supplemental groceries are needed by many seniors in Hernando County because their Social Security and retirement checks just too small.  Many have to choose between eating and paying the rent. PHP supplies groceries to over 250 seniors each month in Hernando County.

Neighborhood Blessings

If you found yourself homeless, because you lost your job or due to an illness,  you'd probably have little idea of what to do.  Yes, there are some chronic homeless, but many right now are out of work because of Covid-19.  Your donation will provide groceries, toiletries and camping supplies. 

Now more than ever, PHP needs your help as Covid-19 has made it more difficult for more people in our area.   Any help you can give is greatly appreciated as PHP continues to take a bite out of hunger in Hernando County!

Please help hungry people in Hernando County.
