Our Passion is Helping People
Harvesting In Mansfield (HIM Center) is both a food bank and food pantry meaning we serve both clients who go through a simple application process to receive food AND we provide food in bulk (500lbs – 2,500lbs) to over 100 churches and other nonprofit organizations for them to distribute all over North Texas.
HIM served approximately 185,000 people in 2019 with approximately 5 million lbs. of food generously donated and bought at discounted prices from our wonderful partners that include Tarrant Area Food Bank, Feeding America, Frito-Lay, Niagara Water, Wal-Mart Distribution, Panera Bread, and many more partners. In addition, we also work with Common Ground, Rush Creek Church, and several school districts in supporting their efforts with both back packs for kids and the summer sack programs. In 2019 we also provided full Thanksgiving meals to over 850 families in need and Christmas meals and toys to over 200 families.
With the onslaught of the pandemic and the devastating unemployment numbers, the need has increased exponentially.
Harvesting In Mansfield was founded in 1987 in El Paso, Texas, as White Harvest Ministries. Our goal was simple; provide hot meals to the homeless. Today, our name has changed and we have relocated our corporate office to Mansfield Texas, but our goal remains the same; feed hungry children, families, and seniors. In addition to our current programs and services we have also been a valuable resource with community disaster response In events such as the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, the Haltom City tornadoes, Oklahoma flooding and hurricane Gustav. Most recently in 2019 we supported over 350 families who were severely affected by the government shutdown.
The H.I.M. Center is a non-profit agency as designated by the IRS: section 501(c)3. We rely on the generous contributions of faithful friends, local businesses, and corporate donors who share our vision of feeding the hungry.
