Call the MANNA Food Helpline

MANNA’s Food Helpline is here to help connect residents to food support close to home. Helpline agents can find a food pantry or program in your area. Additionally, our Helpline team is trained to help people sign up for SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), a program to put grocery dollars right in a families’ pocket. (Learn more about SNAP, aka Food Stamps or FNS, here). Our qualified team can test potential program eligibility, and help you complete an application or recertification over the phone. This service is free and confidential, and can make an otherwise complicated process convenient, straightforward, and hassle-free.

Call our MANNA Food Helpline at 1-800-820-1109, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., or click the button below to fill out a simple, private online contact form, and a member of our Helpline team will reach out to you.
