Weekly Food Distributions
Community members may attend any one of our 4 weekly food distributions up to once per week. No qualifications are required to receive food from Project MANA.

Let's Talk Turkey *Seasonal
In November 2013, over 500 local families received turkeys and fixings through Project MANA’s Let’s Talk Turkey Food Distribution. Thanks to generous donations from the community, each community member who signed up for Let’s Talk Turkey and attended the distribution brought home a whole turkey, fresh produce, and other fixings for a fantastic holiday meal.
