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.
