Hope Begins With You

Hope Begins With You

As we enter November, we’re reminded that the holiday season is just around the corner. This time of year is about coming together, showing gratitude, and spreading kindness. At MANNA, we believe that together, we can be a rainbow of hope in the storm.

Just like the vibrant colors of a rainbow emerge after the darkest of storms, we have the power to make a difference in the lives of our neighbors who are facing adversity. Your support can light up the lives of those who need it most, especially during this season of giving.

This season, there are so many ways to get involved and contribute to the mission of ending hunger in Western North Carolina.  

As always, volunteers are the lifeblood of our mission. Give of your time and make a tangible impact. Join us at the food bank, help with food distribution, or support our programs that empower our neighbors to thrive. Get involved here.  

Host a food drive. Now is the perfect time to call for your community to come together and support our neighbors. For more information on how to run a successful food drive, please see this page.
