Donate – Be Part of the Movement
In Matthew 25:25-26, Jesus spoke of feeding the hungry, clothing the poor and befriending the lonely. We carry out those duties through several avenues and hope that you will become a Friend of Manna so that together we can make a difference.
Manna Café needs $125,000 a month to operate fully. Some of that comes through private grants, but staying “in the black” is nothing short of miraculous! We’ve operated on prayer and faith since our inception — and it works — but we’re asking you to join us on this mission to help those who need it.
There are plenty of ways you can use the financial blessings the Lord has given you to bless others:
- Just $35 per month will provide a 60-pound box of food to a local individual or family.
- For $300, you can sponsor a Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday hot meal, providing men, women, and children with hot, healthy plates of food.
- Just $100 per month will provide 50 people with a hot, nutritious meal.
- Just $55 will provide a motel room for one night for an individual or family during inclement weather; $275 will pay for a full week.
Other Ways You Can Be a Part
We always need volunteers. We can always use help preparing food boxes, washing dishes, manning food drives, serving meals, and keeping everything clean. Our Volunteer Coordinator would love to talk to you and get you set up. Email her at Kim@MannaCafeMinistries.com.
Give Your Prayer
Give Your Resources
In our struggling economy, most of us want to know how to stretch our household dollars as far as we can. We at Manna Café want to let you in on the secret of stretching your donated dollar as well. Food drives are crucial, and we’ll always welcome them because they give everyone a chance to contribute; whether a person gives one can or a buggy-full, they’re making a difference in a tangible way. But for those who are looking for the “smartest” way to help, the following illustration shows how the donated dollar can be stretched, as Kenny says, “until it screams.”
This first photo shows what you might purchase at the grocery store with the average donated dollar: one name-brand item.
However, when your dollar is donated directly to Manna Café, we use our resources (such as Second Harvest Food Bank) to purchase food at a reduced rate. On a “bad” day, when prices are high, we’re able to double your money by purchasing two cans versus one. But on a good day, we’re able to purchase four—with .20 left over to put toward fuel!
We are truly grateful for every single item that’s donated, and we distribute each one to a family in need. But we’d like to encourage you to give smart this year, and we thank you in advance for your generosity and sacrifice.
