Donating Food

Manna is always in need of nonperishable food. We appreciate donations both from individuals and groups.

One of the ways you can help is to sponsor a food drive at your office, faith-based organization, civic group, school, club, or neighborhood association. Here is a handy guide on How to Conduct a Food Drive.

You can drop off food donations Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm or on the second Saturday of the month from 10am - 2pm at:

Manna Food Center
9311 Gaither Road
Gaithersburg, MD 20877
301-424-1130  |
Just 2 blocks off of Shady Grove

An after-hours drop box is located outside the main entrance for donations made after our regular office hours.

If you collect a large amount of food (more than a minivan will hold,) we may be able to arrange for one of our trucks to pick up the donated food. Simply contact Manna at 301-424-1130. Please note that we may need several days lead time - or even a couple of weeks during busy times -- in order to pick up your donation.

Here is a handy list of the food we need most often at Manna.
