Offering quality balanced meals in a safe and respectful environment is the primary focus of Manna.  Additionally, we’re also helping people achieve greater self-sufficiency through our expanded programs. Visit our program page to learn more about our culinary school, social enterprise program, backpack program, and garden.

Donating Your Time

Every year our volunteers donate close to 10,000 hours of service. This not only helps people in need, but it also contributes to Manna’s leading role in bettering our community. Simply stated, we wouldn’t be where we are without the dedication of our volunteers. To learn more about how you can make a difference, contact us today or visit our volunteer page for more information.

Making a Monetary Donation

It’s often misunderstood that Manna receives funding from the federal government, when in fact, Manna is a private non-profit organization that receives no government funding and is solely supported by its donors, local businesses and volunteers. It’s community backing that helps us fund and run all of our programs and services. Because of the generosity of our community, we continue to grow as an organization. Together, we can positively influence the health and economic vitality of our region. Please donate now to reinforce our efforts and improve the quality of life for everyone in La Plata County.

Planned Giving

Planned giving allows donors to give at a more substantial level using other resources such as life insurance, surplus real estate, stocks and securities, or other investments that may incur substantial taxes should you liquidate. We recommend that you speak with an attorney who specializes in estate planning when making these decisions. If you would like to leave a “legacy,” please contact Ann Morse, Executive Director, today at (970) 385-5095, ext. 7 or send an email to director@mannasoupkitchen.com for more information on different giving avenues.
