March Food Campaign

FEBRUARY 26th thru April 8th is when Manna Food Pantry, Inc. is once again taking part in the State Wide annual “March Food Campaign!” for our local food shelf. This year the Worthington Regional Health Care Foundation is going to be matching any funds that come in, dollar for dollar, up to $30,000. Besides the money & product donations received locally, Manna Food Pantry receives a small match from the MN Council of Churches who helps to sponsor this event state wide, based upon a percentage of all that is raised locally compared to the total received at the state level.

The goal for Manna Food Pantry in 2018 is 95,000 combined pounds and dollars. Manna Food Pantry is able to “stretch your donation” by purchasing our needed food products from Second Harvest Heartland, for pennies on the dollar. We also enjoy being able to shop locally when the sales are better than what we can purchase through Second Harvest. We are able to purchase approximately $100.00 of food products for every $10.00 that we receive. If you or your business feel inclined to have a part in ending the hunger situation here in Nobles County, please send your donations to: Manna Food Pantry, Inc. 230 Clary Street Worthington, MN 56187. Please remember to write your checks out to the “WRHCF” with “Manna” on the memo line.

A sincere “thank you” to all of those that have donated in any way in the past & we look forward to the future.

If you have any questions or would you like to volunteer, please contact, Linda Sanchez, coordinator at 507-329-1951.
