Partner With Manna
Manna provides more than 3.7 million pounds of food each year to both individuals and nonprofit agencies. The support we receive from our partners and our community is essential. By making a donation that helps provide essential food to hungry Montgomery County, becoming a Smart Sacks partner to provide thousands of weekend meals for elementary children, or holding a food drive to stock our shelves, Manna's partners make a significant difference in the fight against hunger in our community.
Here are ways your business or organization can fight hunger and feed hope with Manna:
Corporate Challenge Grants
Provide a grant to challenge employees or individuals to make a financial contribution to Manna. Offer a matching donation
to double or triple the money donated to help feed those in need.
Employee Fund Drives
Designate United Way, CFC, and other workplace campaign contributions to Manna Food Center. (click here for Workplace Giving
Combined Federal Campaign - Designation number #23028
United Way - Designation number #8846
Hold a food drive
at your office to keep our shelves stocked with healthy non-perishable food. One idea is to encourage departments or floors to compete to see who can collect the most food. Distribute a list of Manna's preferred food list
to make it easier to know what to donate. Offer a prize … or bragging rights … to the winning department to celebrate their efforts. The event builds teamwork and helps a valuable cause at the same time.
Smart Sacks is an innovative way to fight childhood hunger while giving your employees a chance to give back to their community – without leaving the office. Your organization fills bags or backpacks with kid-friendly food that is provided by Manna and then delivers them to your partner elementary school each week. This is a vital program that offers many rewards to both the employees and the children who receive the food each week. Contact Alexandria Scott
, our Smart Sacks Director, at 301-424-1130 for more information on becoming a Smart Sacks Partner.
Volunteering at Manna is a terrific way to do team building while making a difference. Groups of employees can sort food or pack boxes at our warehouse during the day or after normal business hours. This can be a regular monthly event or a one-time activity. Your employees can also help with a special event or share the skills of individual employees to support
the efforts of Manna Food Center. Contact our Volunteer Coordinator at 301-424-1130 or email
for more information on your
company can volunteer.
