In light of COVID-19 concerns, Manna Café Ministries has made several adjustments to their services. Says Director Kenny York, “After praying and speaking with our staff and executive Board members this morning, we’re committed to continuing our services while also keeping our clients, staff, and volunteers safe. Our goal is to honor current guidelines while also remembering that many people have lost part or all of their income and need even more access to food, hygiene items, and so on.”
- Until further notice, details are as follows:
Food distribution will continue on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 10 – 4. Clients will be accepted into the lobby 10 at a time to strictly limit interaction.
- Hot meals will continue on Tuesday and Thursday Evenings as well Saturday mornings in the usual locations but will be distributed as to-go boxes only. In addition, Manna Café will add a Wednesday and Thursday evening hot meal at the Refuge Center (503 D. Street, in the Manna Village).
- The free clinic on Thursdays will shift to every other Tuesday.
- All other programs such as Change for Change and Operation Pomegranate are temporarily on hold.
Manna Café thanks the community for their continued support as they strive to meet the needs of our most vulnerable neighbors.

A Mobile Pantry is a one-day event (in cooperation with Second Harvest Food Bank) during which a trailer truckload of food is distributed to approximately 300 clients. The Pantry is unique from our other food programs in that it occurs at satellite locations in parts of the city not otherwise serviced, making food available to unique populations, including those without transportation.

Manna Cafe’s mission is only made possible by the tireless work of hundreds of volunteers. We are incredibly grateful for the volunteers already involved, and are always looking for more people to join the team. Whether you are interesting in cooking for one of the meals, driving a truck or just helping serve food, there is a place to help.
