Your February 6 Share the Plate donations will support Manna on Meridian. A combined effort of five local churches, the food pantry has operated for 13 years here on Meridian Road. Manna was founded and continues to be possible because of the donations from member congregations; fueled by the love we feel for our neighbors, especially those who are hungry.
While the numbers of those needing assistance were averaging 150 per month prior to the pandemic, Manna is now serving 200-250 families per month. Manna is run solely on donations of goods and finances and the work of dedicated volunteers.
While most of us make or purchase Valentine cards that ’tell’ our friends and family how much we love them, we need to continue to ‘feel love’ for those neighbors who can use some help right now. Make a generous donation from your heart this month to Manna on Meridian.
