MANNA in need of more food, sign-up here to help!

Hello faithful MANNA volunteers! The MANNA Community is incredibly appreciative of all the help provided by Christ Church. The Rev. Jennifer McCracken has requested additional items from us on a monthly basis to help supplement the Monday lunch program. The MANNA Community has seen an increase in attendance recently and the additional food items will be a tremendous help. Currently, we are providing the following:

  • 5 casseroles (pans and simple recipe provided)
  • 100 individually wrapped baked goods
  • 75 bananas
  • 75 bagged lunches

In order to provide a more complete meal, the MANNA Community would appreciate the following additional food items:

  • 4 bags of pre-washed mixed greens (24 oz each)
  • 1 large bag of pre-shredded carrots (20-24 oz)
  • 1 gallon of cut-up cucumbers (about 8-10 medium-sized cukes)
  • 2 containers of cherry tomatoes (10 oz each)
  • 1 vegetarian meal – 1 large box of Asian noodles with vegetables (or something similar that can be cooked on-site) 

If you are interested in signing up to donate one or more of the requested items or if you would like to drive the food to the Cathedral on Sunday please visit the Sign-Up Genius.

If you need help signing up or have any questions at all please don’t hesitate to reach out to Lindsay Guerriere or Barbara Hurley.
