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 the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps), a program to put grocery dollars right in a families’ pocket. Learn more about SNAP. 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.
