Communicating with MANNA: 
It is imperative that you communicate your pantry status and any changes you many have with MANNA as frequently as possible. Our goal is that we can present clear and accurate information to all people who are in need of food assistance.
  1. Have you changed you distribution dates or hours of distribution?
  2. Will you be shifting to a different style of food distribution? (Example: Drive through or pre-boxed food)
  3. Do you need volunteers from the community?

Communicate any and all changes with your Zone Coordinator or our Agency Relations Coordinator or simply reply to this email.
