The Hope Buss serves the Louisville community throughout five (5) main initiatives with the goal of addressing food insecurity, education, health and wellness, emergency services, and community engagement in a way that is engaging, impactful, and hopeful. We strive to make available resources accessible, to make hope tangible, and to be led by the community for the community.



Our food justice program exists to increase ACCESS to food for underserved families in Louisville’s West End by offering food box delivers, free transportation to grocery stores, a food pantry and weekly hot meals to families and our houseless neighbors.
