Hope Builders Food Pantry

New Disciples provides fiduciary sponsorship for Hope Builders, a local program whose mission is twofold: 1) get food to people in need on the southwest side of Cedar Rapids and 2) teach life skills while equipping youth to build bicycles that will help people to transport themselves to and from work and food. 

Currently, Hope Builders has Partnered with Green Square Meals to bring food to our Westdale neighbors on the 3rd Saturday of the month.  Food is distributed in the parking lot of LADD Library starting at 9 a.m.

We are exploring the possibility of Hope Builders building a food pantry and a bicycle work studio on the property.  Donations can be directed to Hope Builders for this endeavor.  We invite you to give online or to send a check to New Disciples with a note expressing its intents is for Hope Builders.
