MANNA FoodBank is a private, not-for-profit service organization that links the food industry with over 200 partner agencies in 16 counties of WNC to get food to families’ tables. MANNA is an acronym, and stands for Mountain Area Nutritional Needs Alliance. We are a member of Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization. Together we can solve hunger.
