MANNA operates with minimal government support and is dependent on donations of both food and funds to sustain its operation and to support a growing base of clients.
In 2011 MANNA helped 40,870 individuals in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. The demand for our nutritionally balanced food supplies continues to grow… as does the need to raise awareness and garner lifeline support.
MANNA could not operate without the financial support of the community. MANNA is designated a 501(c)(3) charitable organization by the federal government, meaning that all donations to MANNA are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Donations are critical to ongoing operations and facility improvements. The need is especially significant during the summer months when donations are typically at their lowest levels.
MANNA accepts both designated and undesignated donations, for both operational as well as capital needs. Furthermore, MANNA is able to accept gifts of stocks or other appreciable assets. Often a donor can realize significant tax savings by making such a donation. Consult with your financial advisor for detailed information on such opportunities.
MANNA also encourages current supporters to consider MANNA in your estate planning so that your generosity and commitment to our community will continue upon death.

The local economic downturn has forced some businesses to close and others to lay off workers, which has affected demand for food staples in recent months. MANNA Pantries is a short-term emergency food distribution organization. We want to be there for those who find themselves in an emergency food crisis, and we need continued community support to ensure we have the provisions needed to address emergency food needs throughout the year.
