Project Manna is the Massachusetts Avenue Baptist Church’s outreach to the displaced and the community. Under the direction of Rev. Brenda A. Brown, Executive Director, nutritional assistance is provided to enhance the quality of life and decrease the incidence of hunger for low-income families and individuals.
The meals program includes an onsite community dinner that is held on both Thanksgiving and Christmas. With the help of generous donors gifts are also provided at the Christmas dinner that includes toiletry baskets, warm clothing and blankets, as well as winter coats. In addition to its meals program Project Manna operates a food pantry to provide assistance, aimed at increasing the nutritional competency of needy families in our community.
Once per month outreach to the community also includes the Epic Program, a food pantry that feeds an average of 100 families per month. Notifications for upcoming food pantries and Project Manna related events can be found on this page.
