Project MANA volunteers pack and deliver bags of food on a weekly basis to qualifying individuals residing in the North Lake Tahoe/Truckee region. See the FACE Welcome Packet (also found here in Spanish) for program details. How do I sign up? Project MANA staff will conduct an in-person assessment to determine if your needs and our service are a good match. To qualify for home delivery, you must:
Be incapable of attending one of our weekly food distributions due to a mental or physical limitation (and provide a written verification of your condition from a doctor)
Have no outside assistance such as family, neighbors, friends, or church, and have no other members of your household who can attend food distributions
Have a gross monthly income of less than $1,211 (or 130% of the Federal poverty level)
Live within Project MANA’s service area, which includes Tahoe City, Truckee, Kings Beach or Incline Village
What kind of food will I get? Individuals enrolled in the FACE Program receive a bag of perishable foods each week and a bag of non-perishable foods every other week. We try to include food from all five food groups (vegetables, fruits, dairy, grains and protein) but are accommodating to any dietary restrictions.
