Did you know that Project MANA receives approximately 75%, about 100,000 pounds, of our annual total donated food during the holiday season? All those donations at once can cause a strain our resources as well as create storage issues. As our community's mobile food pantry, serving the 1 in 7 community members facing food insecurity in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee, 30% of whom are under the age of 18, we have great wholesale purchasing power and are able to source and buy the nutritional foods we need at a very low cost, giving our clients more diversity and nutrition per meal than physical donations may provide.
This holiday season, we're inviting your business or organization to host a Virtual Food Drive.
