Delivering a healthier future starts here.
The MANNA Food is Medicine model is proven to be effective. Our peer-reviewed research shows MANNA clients’ rate of hospitalization decreased by half. Average monthly health care costs for MANNA clients fall 62% over the first three months of being on the meal program, a cost savings of more than $3,000 per client. More wellness means fewer missed work and school days – better for families, and better for our region. Our medically tailored meals can feed a person for 6 months for the same cost as one night in a hospital.
In order to expand the MANNA mission and serve more individuals living with life-threatening illnesses, we needed a facility that allows us to grow. More square footage means serving more clients which leads to a healthier community. Not only can we serve more clients, we will also be able to better accommodate our volunteers. Volunteers are the lifeblood of MANNA. The new location is easily accessible and visible to the community. The new space includes a larger kitchen, expanded office space, and an enhanced volunteer lounge.
