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.
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.
“My husband and I are both in the Navy. Things were fine, then my sister passed away suddenly and left behind her three small children. Our family doubled in size overnight. Without any extra income, we are struggling to provide everything the kids need, including food.”
