The food donated for the two-day Make a Difference Food Drive was taken Monday morning to six pantries.

The shelves are already well-stocked at the Domestic Violence Shelter in Mansfield, but the women and children staying there eat it quickly.

So Director of Shelter Services Trisa Allen says this new supply should keep them well fed for months to come, probably until next summer. 

The pantry at Catholic Charities is also in good shape, but Food Pantry Specialist Vickie Schupp says with record numbers of people coming in for assistance, this food drive could not have come at a better time.

Both say they're very grateful to the organizers of the food drive, and to the many residents who donated.

The Make a Difference Food Drive also re-stocked the pantries are the Salvation Army, Volunteers of America, Harmony House, and Butler Clearfork Nutrition Center.
