Through your generous donations of food and monetary contributions, we have been able to help those in need within the Mansfield community and our St. Jude Parish. In 2018, the food pantry was able to provide food supplies for 1,837 families (8253) people). In November, 70 families also received food boxed to prepare their Thanksgiving dinners. During the school season, in conjunction with Common Ground's Backpack Program, we provided weekend meals for 62 designated MISD students; and during the summer's Feed the Kids Program, we weekly provided about 200 MISD students with food bags each consisting of 5-8 , meals. Also, in 2018, SVdP served 302 families in need of financial assistance with their utility bills.
