Mission Statement

In Chapter 25 of the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus tells us, “Whatsoever you do for the least of my sisters and brothers you do to me … for I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.” Our mission is to put God’s words into action with compassion, while respecting the dignity of all people who come to Hope Center Pantry regardless of race, status or creed.

Supporting Parishes

The Quad-Parishes (Annunciation, St. Joseph, St. Jude and St. Patrick), Nativity, St. Agnes and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton provide the overhead. These same parishes along with Holy Cross, Old St. Joseph, Resurrection and St. Matthew regularly provide monetary and/or food donations as well as volunteers.


Hope Center Pantry is managed and staffed entirely by volunteers. Most volunteers are scheduled only one 2-hour shift per month (unless they prefer to work more often than that). If you’re interested in volunteering with a fun group of people, please send an email to HopeCenterPantryGB@gmail.com and provide your name and phone number and we will reach out to you.

Families Assisted

In 2019, Hope Center Pantry (formerly known as St. Patrick’s Pantry) provided food for 3,985 families.

Pantry Closings Due to Inclement Weather

The Pantry closure procedure for winter weather will follow what the Green Bay Public Schools decide. So, basically if schools are closed for bad weather, so also the Pantry will be closed. The Pantry closing announcement will also be broadcast through TV and Radio stations as follows: TV Stations – WBAY, WFRV, NBC26 and Fox 11; Radio Stations – Cumulus, WIXX, WTAQ, WNCY, WNFL, WOZZ, WROE and WZBY. This information is also posted at the Pantry. If you are a volunteer that is scheduled to work at the Pantry on a day that it is unexpectedly closed, we will also try to contact you via email and/or phone to make you aware. If you are uncomfortable traveling due to weather, please contact the pantry director and we’ll find a sub.
