A praying mantis loves to eat grasshoppers.
Praying Mantis are at the top of the food chain in the insect world. If there were no praying manti, lets just say that there would be way too many bugs.
Which organisms are usually the first step in a food chain
No a praying mantis is a consumer. Plants are producers, they produce their own food through photosynthesis.

You feed them food
The phylum of a praying mantis is Arthropoda. The kingdom of the praying mantis is the Animalia. The class of a praying mantis is insecta.

It depends on the religious denomination of the "Praying Mantis". Different religions not only have designated places to seek food, but also, the type of food that the Praying Mantis may eat.I believe Hermosa Beach, in California has a Homeless Mission for the Praying Mantis; however, the food is for consumption "in house", NOT for "take-out"! Not sure if it's still there, as this was back in 1999, when I lived in the area.
