How For-Profit Nonprofit Works for Everyone

Starting a for-profit nonprofit business may sound unconventional, but it’s a model that benefits everyone involved. Meals of Hope has been at the forefront of this approach since 2007, offering a streamlined process that brings communities together to tackle the pressing issue of hunger. Here’s how it works: As a Meals of Hope franchise owner, your role centers around building relationships with various organizations, including charities, businesses, universities, and houses of worship. These sponsors play a pivotal role in hosting meal packing events by providing venues, volunteers, and event spaces.

The ingredients for the meals to be packed are supplied by the parent company of Meals of Hope. As the meal packing event wraps up, the collected food is then donated to local food banks, ensuring that the impact of your efforts reverberates throughout your community. This holistic approach creates a synergy between various stakeholders, and the for-profit nonprofit model ensures sustainability, allowing you to continue facilitating change while running a thriving business.

“There’s no shortage of organizations that want to help,” says Steve Popper, President and CEO. “Many businesses today have developed a corporate social responsibility strategy, and they are always looking for ways to give back. Houses of worship and faith-based charities are always looking for ways to live their values. We’ve worked with every type of organization, and the results are always phenomenal. Everyone who participates leaves feeling great. From our franchise owners, to their sponsors, to the volunteers who show up, it’s a win-win-win for all involved.”

Supporting Our Franchisees

As a Meals of Hope franchisee, your role carries immense significance. You become a catalyst for community engagement, connecting sponsors, volunteers, and beneficiaries to make each meal packing event as impactful as possible. Your journey includes finding sponsors to host events, then planning and executing those events seamlessly. To ensure that you are well-equipped for this important role, Meals of Hope offers comprehensive support at every step of the way.

“We don’t call our owners franchisees, we call them Packing Partners, because they are truly partners of Meals of Hope,” Steve says. “They are a part of a family that’s committed to doing whatever we can to help them grow and thrive. Nothing about our end is done with financial gain in mind. Even our franchise fee goes to support the food pantries that feed 1,000 people a week. The more successful our franchise owners are, the more people we all get to help together.”

But don’t worry, our franchise team is ready to support you in all aspects of the business model.
