We also accept and appreciate all non-perishable food donations. To ensure food safety, we cannot accept any rusty or unlabeled cans, perishable items, homemade items, noncommercial canned or packaged goods, alcoholic beverages, or items that have been used or opened.

Food Drives

MANNA is always in need of your help collecting food for our neighbors in need. To help you run a successful food drive we've put together a "Food Drive & Event Guide". With a little work and a lot of fun, you can make a difference in the lives of families, children, and seniors who are struggling with hunger in our community.

Thank you for joining the fight against hunger!
