Our History

Washington County Harvest of Hope was founded in 2005 as a mission of Christ United Methodist Church in Marietta, OH to address the growing needs of hungry families and area agencies who serve them. In September 2007, WCHOH received its 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt status from the IRS.  

Harvest of Hope is governed by a Board of Directors.  We have four staff members: an Executive Director, Administrative Assistant, Volunteer Coordinator, and Garden Coordinator. There are also 13 non-board committee members and four advisers working with the board and staff to build a strong, effective organization

More than 140 volunteers work together to pick up and deliver food, assist with hot meal programs, coordinate community gardens, and participate in fundraising events.
