MANNAfesting Hope

Although our beloved Blue Jean Ball was cancelled this year… Hunger Is Not.

As food insecurity rises across WNC due to the pandemic, more people are turning to MANNA than ever before in our history. More than ever, those we serve need the support this event would have provided.

Even pre-COVID-19, more than 100,000 people in WNC were facing an empty plate throughout the year. MANNA and our partner network have seen an immediate and staggering increase – well over 60% – in the number of people suddenly not being able to buy the food they need. The need is deep, and persistent.

It is only with your help that MANNA has been able to meet this dramatic need thus far.

About MANNAfesting Hope:

One Ticket. Nine Families Fed.

MANNAfesting Hope is a simple fundraising campaign to continue providing food and hope to the growing number of people who need our help.

We are asking our Blue Jean Ball enthusiasts, and ALL those who want to help our neighbors in crisis, to donate to MANNA in the amount of what one ticket to Blue Jean Ball would have been: just $95.

Your gift can help MANNAfest Hope for our community by providing enough food for over nine family food boxes.

(You can donate securely online at, or send a check to MANNA with MANNAfesting Hope in the notes.)
