The moral test of a government is how it treats those who are at the dawn of life, the children; those who are in the twilight of life, the aged; and those who are in the shadow of life, the sick and the needy, and the handicapped. ~Hubert Humphrey
Recognizing a shortage of food existed for our most vulnerable Enterprise residents, we formed our organization using sensible solutions. Our unique approach to filling the food gaps was delivering food to the at-need. This gives us the opportunity to fully vet our referrals. Also witnessing conditions of need gives us a broader view of how we might help. HUE members will rally when needed - donating clothes from their closets or even household items. Each family is given a Hand Up not a hand out. It is a privilege to serve our community. Paying it forward is what we do.
COVID19 pandemic school closings left low income Enterprise children without the USDA school feeding program food. Hand Up began an immediate distribution of 400+ food bags. As community resources became mobilizing Hand Up worked with the Enterprise school system to distribute twice weekly food drops. Hand Up worked with SYSCO foods to distribute 40+ ton of food !
Our amazing team of regulars and part-time volunteers are committed to helping others. We take our convictions and turn them into action. No one takes a salary. Think you would be a good fit? Drop us an email for more information!

Hand Up steps up to feed people. Working families, the elderly, veterans, single parent's, and the disabled. Without community support we could not help our underserved communities. We need help in fundraising, food collection and expanding our food storage facility. Thanks for all you do. PAY IT FORWARD.
