Over 23,000 square feet of hope under one roof.

Our new home at 3030 North E Street puts Manna under the same roof for the first time in decades. More importantly, this space will increase our operational efficiency and capacity. This will enable us to expand services and address the growing hunger issues our neighbors face.

The 2014 flood destroyed all our food and equipment.

Before that, Manna operated in two separate buildings – a non-air conditioned warehouse space and a separate building that housed services, food, and freezer space. Now we use two construction trailers and small portions of our two original buildings. Combined we have roughly 50% of our former space.

Between the significantly reduced working area and less than ideal food handling capabilities, it didn’t take long to see that these conditions couldn’t sustain our operations.

Our Capitol Campaign to raise the necessary $1 million has begun.

Without question, this new building will let us improve access to healthy food for children, families, and seniors in need.

“Our only income is a monthly social security check. Sometimes I struggle to provide enough food. I always make sure my wife and my grandchildren eat first, and that their bellies are full.”
