A Little Bit About MANNA:
The MANNA food center is the main food bank for Montgomery Country Maryland, and nearly every county nonprofit oganization relies on MANNA to provide essential food to their clients.
Founded in 1983, MANNA strives to end hunger in Montgomery County through education, advocacy, and food distribution. Through their regular distribution program, MANNA feeds about 3,300 families each month at fourteen locations through the county. MANNA provides each family with a three to five day supply of perishable and shelf-stable food.
Hunger is hidden, but prevelant in Montgomery County. One of every four residents is at risk of hungerand 29.2%of all MCPS students qualify for a free or reduced priced meal, an indicationof the poverty we face daily in our community.
MANNA relies on the generosity of our community to fight hunger. Ninety-four cents of every dollar donated goes directly to feeding our hungry.
You can help. Donate food or volunteer to help us fight hunger and feed hope in Montgomery County.
Warmest wishes for a healthy and happy holiday season!
