It’s not just food to eat. It’s really important that I try to manage my diet. Catholic Charities helped me because I don’t have to go out and buy the cheapest food possible, which may not be good for my health. ~Gary

The recent economy in Mansfield has been challenging for many who live in the area. Once a flourishing manufacturing town, Mansfield now struggles with high unemployment rates and low household income levels after many factories closed or moved out of the area.

Living up to its name, the HOPE Food Pantry in Mansfield is a client-choice food pantry that serves hundreds of people a week. Clients are able to choose which food options work best for them and their households in a grocery store setting. This ensures that the people who come to the pantry are served with the utmost dignity and respect. To learn more about the HOPE Food Pantry, click the video below:
