Including a bequest in your will to Manna Cafe Ministries is a powerful way to ensure we can continue serving people in need not just today or tomorrow but for years to come. If you do not have an up-to-date plan, you can use this online estate planning tool from our partner, FreeWill, to create your legal will for free and establish your lasting legacy with Manna Cafe Ministries.

Stock Giving

Donating appreciated stock is an impactful way to fight against hunger in our community — while also saving on taxes. Using this online stock donation tool, it only takes a couple of minutes to access Manna Cafe Ministries’ account information to share with a broker or, if your brokerage permits, fill out the forms online to complete the gift electronically.

IRA Giving

If you are over 70.5, giving from your IRA helps you reduce your taxable income — and for those over 72 who must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD), an IRA gift is a simple way to fulfill it while supporting your neighbors facing hunger. If you’re ready to make your gift, you can use this secure online donation tool to fill out the forms from your IRA custodian in just a few minutes or print out the forms and fill them out offline.

Other Ways You Can Be a Part

Give Your Time

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


Give Your Prayer

We touch hundreds of lives every week in numerous ways. Each of our tasks is important and often difficult, and together they can be overwhelming. Prayer for our team is crucial.

Give Your Resources

Organize a food drive or fundraiser. Donate your expertise to help us maintain our vehicles or building. Spread the word about Manna Café, our mission and our needs in your various communities, e.g. school, work, church, or clubs.

Giving Smart

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 once said, “until it screams.”

This first photo shows what you might purchase at the grocery store with the average donated dollar: one name-brand item.

Can Purchased with $1 - Donate - Manna Café Ministries

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.

—Vicki York and the Manna Cafe team
