Closing Children’s Weekend Meal Gap
MANNA Packs are bags of nutritious food intended to help close the weekend meal gap students experience when school is not in-session and other resources are not available. Foods include ready-to-eat breakfast items; shelf-stable fruits, vegetables, and entrees; and snacks. MANNA Packs are available at no cost to students or to our partners across WNC that distribute the Packs.
MANNA works diligently to ensure that MANNA Packs are not only accessible to students throughout our region, but also enjoyable. Keep reading through our newsletter to learn about our recent student taste panel that is helping us decide what children actually want in a MANNA Pack.
