Manna Food Project

In an effort to increase social distancing and keep everyone safe, we are continuing to reduce the number of volunteers in our facility.
Currently, all of our volunteer activities are covered, and we do not need more volunteers at this time. However, things change quickly, so If you want to add your name to our call list please call or email Jessyca.
We ask that all who volunteer with us fill out a self-disclosure form regarding health status and potential exposure to COVID-19, and take all precautions necessary to avoid spreading the virus, including wearing a mask and staying 6 feet away from others.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to refine our procedures.

Here are some other ways you can help your community:
  • Continue to provide your financial support. While food banks across the country are reporting lower donation rates, the need for emergency food is increasing due to school closures, illness, and financial stress. 

  • Keep yourself healthy. Wash your hands often and follow good hygiene practices to stop the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the burden on local health providers. 

  • Stay informed. For volunteer updates and ways to lend a hand, please keep up to date through this email newsletter. You can also follow Manna's Facebook page and website for news.

  • Look for other ways to volunteer. Start making masks and hand them out to community members. Join groups, like Emmet County Helping Hands on Facebookto see how you can help someone in need. The State of Michigan also has volunteer opportunities, including virtual projects!
