One Mission Cambridge impacts hunger, homelessness

One Mission Cambridge offers a stocked food pantry. The organization is working hard to keep food on the pantry shelves to keep up with current demand.

CAMBRIDGE — When one stops by One Mission Cambridge at 614 Race Street in Cambridge on any given day, they may meet a variety of people seeking food, resource referral, or just a listening ear. The range of services the organization offers is diverse and includes food items, counseling, and connection to resources such as health care, financial assistance and jobs.

“Our goal is to show everyone who comes through the door love, just as Jesus loved us,” said Krista Pettit, leader of One Mission Cambridge’s efforts. Pettit credits volunteers, financial supporters and churches for helping to meet the needs of an average of 227 people a month and keeping food on the pantry shelves.
