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

Food Drives

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

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.

Volunteer Opportunities

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.
