Manna Cares

The Manna Cares Campaign is a fundraiser to provide COVID-19 response and recovery relief for Manna so that we may continue our work in fulfilling our mission.

Please help us raise $200,000 to support Manna’s efforts to feed our neighbors in need in
Escambia and Santa Rosa counties.

In response to the effects of coronavirus, Manna has and will continue to provide the healthiest food possible to our 17 community partners who support the needs of at-risk, vulnerable populations, as well as those who suddenly find themselves unemployed or with reduced hours. As a result, we’ve nearly doubled the amount of food distributed to accommodate the needs of our community.

That’s why we need your help now!

All donations will support our efforts to feed our neighbors in need and will remain in our local community. Donations to the Manna Cares Campaign can be made online or by sending a check to Manna, 3030 North E Street, Pensacola, FL 32501.


Manna gives hope during COVID-19 crisis

It’s important you know that the Manna family continues to
work every day in the fight against hunger during the COVID-19 crisis.

We’ve been pretty quiet the past few weeks, because we’ve been intensely focused on supporting the needs of not only the vulnerable populations we served pre-COVID-19, but also those who suddenly find themselves unemployed or with reduced hours. To adjust to CDC guidelines, reduced volunteer support, and greater need, we have made several changes to the way we operate and to our food distribution procedures. Here are some updates regarding our work:

First and foremost, we are working to ensure that our clients, volunteers, donors and staff remain safe.
We are following CDC and local and state health department guidelines, and we have implemented procedures to minimize risk of exposure. One of several drastic steps we’ve taken to adjust is the reduction of our volunteer workforce.

It is no secret that volunteers are critical to the work we do in fulfilling our mission; we could not do what we do without them. Though, as a result of COVID-19 and the restrictions associated with it, Manna was forced to reduce our operational volunteer workforce by 87%. We have also suspended all volunteer group activities.

As our volunteer workforce decreased, the requests for food increased. In the last weeks of March, Manna’s inbound call volume had increased by 89% when compared to the last weeks of February. As a result, our food output nearly doubled to accommodate the needs of our community. From March 16-27 alone, Manna distributed 87% more food than the last weeks of February.

In order to make the most of our food inventory and deliver it to neighbors in need responsibly, we have shifted our distribution procedures. We have reinforced our established programs to provide additional support, and we continue to seek out partners to establish collaborations that will serve those most in need in the two-county area. At this time, we are providing food (in the form of groceries) to the following partners/programs: Healthy Seniors Food Program at Westminster Village; Boys & Girls Clubs of the Emerald Coast; Manna’s own Monthly Senior Food Program at Main Pantry; Gulf Coast Kids’ House; Santa Rosa Kids’ House; Pensacola Police Department; Escambia County Sheriff’s Office; OASIS Florida; Backpacks4Teens program through the Santa Rosa County School District; United Way of West Florida’s AmeriCorps VISTAs; representatives of the hospitality and service industry; Community Health Northwest Florida; Gulf Breeze Interfaith Disaster Resource Council; Salvation Army; Saint John Divine Baptist Church; Pensacola State College; Re-Entry Alliance Pensacola (REAP); and Children’s Home Society. Meeting the needs of our community during this time cannot be accomplished alone. We are grateful for our community partners and all the good work they do.

Though the landscape changes daily, we are committed to see this through. Thank you for the support you have given us over the years. Because of our hunger heroes, we are able to weather the storm.

We’ll keep you updated here on our website and on our social media channels. Stay safe and healthy!

Love,
The Manna Family
