Come serve at Manna Meals, EC's meal program on scheduled Mondays or Thursdays. Helpers pick up early morning donations at HEB, make food to be served, set up, serve, or clean up. Manna Meals Mission Statement is:
Food First: Feeding those in our community is the highest priority of Manna Meals.
Building Community: Coming together to share a meal and a chance to converse satisfies our need for relationship; it also enables us to get to know our neighbors personally.
Opportunity to Serve: Manna Meals will continue to recognize the value of providing an opportunity for volunteers to express their values through service.
