Nutrition is the foundation of good health. 



nutrition works featured imageThe Hunger in America: Western North Carolina 2014 report revealed that 64% of clients seeking assistance from MANNA’s network have to choose between paying for food and paying for medicine or medical care; 31% of households have diabetes and over half of client households have a member with high blood pressure. The intersection of hunger and health is becoming ever more illuminated.

At MANNA, our mission is to involve, educate, and unite people in the work to end hunger, and that means more than putting food on a plate – it means getting nutritious, health-supporting food to the people who need it most.
