Your Donation Makes a Difference in Our Community
$1 = 4 Meals!
Individual donors are our largest source of support, and help ensure that MANNA can be there for the more than 100,000 people facing an empty plate in WNC every year.
Every dollar that is donated helps to distribute enough food for 4 meals. This is due to the incredible outpouring of support we receive from our volunteers, food donors, and operations partners who help us stretch every resource, so that we and our partner can be there right when a family needs us most.
This passionate dedication by the community inspires us to manage our resources with the highest level of integrity and stewardship. MANNA is honored to have been awarded 4 stars by Charity Navigator, the highest rating possible, for 10 consecutive years, placing the organization in the top 2% of charities across the country for operational and fiscal responsibility.

Whether you are “growing a row” to donate or have a tractor trailer truck load of food, your food donation makes a real impact in the lives of thousands of families across WNC. MANNA is proud to work with national retailers, regional grocery store chains, local farmers, community groups, and individuals just like you to rescue food that will help fill our friends and neighbors plates.
MANNA invites people of all ages and abilities to feed people and their passion through Outpace Hunger, a fundraising campaign to help turn a favorite activity into much-needed food for WNC families. Whether you enjoy walking your pooch, are an avid paddler, a “stop and smell the roses” hiker, yoga lover, or an ultra-marathoner, you can turn your passion into meals by signing up to participate.
Other Ways to Donate
Donate A Vehicle
Your Old Car Can Provide Fresh Hope
MANNA is a mobile organization – your vehicle donation can help keep our staff and volunteers on the road, addressing the need for food across our 16-county service area.
We are currently in need of two safe, reliable, and relatively low-mileage vehicles for our outreach staff. They travel across 6,434 square miles of rural mountain terrain, and we are hoping to secure two vehicles with good gas mileage to keep our costs low.
Donating a car is simple: If you are interested in donating a vehicle, please contact Mary Nesbitt, Chief Development Officer, at (828) 299-3663 ext. 1230 or MNesbitt@MANNAFoodBank.org.
