The season’s celebrations often center around food, making it out of reach for so many people struggling to afford groceries…especially this year, with rising food costs making even a holiday turkey a distant luxury. Right now, MANNA and our partner network are still serving 68% more people than before the pandemic – many who are needing a hand for the first time.

This holiday season, MANNA FoodBank is dedicated to filling as many holiday tables as possible, and you can help us give thousands of households the gift of a holiday, of one less struggle, and a helping of hope.

Donate a Bird in Person!

In partnership with Asheville Radio Group and Asheville Outlets, MANNA is excited to announce that a community-wide turkey drop-off drive will happen on Saturday, November 4, from 10AM to 2PM at the Outlets. Bring a bird and any non-perishable holiday sides to help feed a neighbor. You’ll be able to drive through and drop your donations without even leaving your car!
