Kenny and Vicki York founded Manna Café Ministries in 2008 after years of working with the homeless and poor. Initially they took donated bread and sweets into a local homeless camp, but by the spring of 2010 they had relocated and established Manna Café in Clarksville, TN. Since that time they and their team of volunteers have served tens of thousands of hot meals and distributed more than a million pounds of non-perishable food to area families and individuals. Manna Café’s methods and programs have expanded over the years, but the mission is still the same: to restore hope, love, and dignity to the broken and downcast.
What makes MCM unique is its mobility. Meals are served and food is distributed from various locations throughout the community. MCM is committed to going to where the need exists.

Manna Café Ministries’ Vision Statement:
“And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly I say to you in as much as you did to one of the least of these my brethren you did it to Me'” [Matt. 2:40, KJV]. Our motto, drawn from this scripture, is “Being Jesus to Jesus.” As followers of Jesus, we desire to become more and more like Him.
