About Manna on Main Street
The mission at Manna is to provide food, education, outreach, and assistance to make sure no one goes hungry. The organization started in 1981 to try to fulfill unmet needs for people in the community. After hard work and dedication, they were able to expand to a larger facility in 2016 in North Penn Commons, allowing them to offer a wider range of assistance.
This free public program invites anyone to come grab a hot and healthy meal when needed. All the food is prepared fresh each day by experienced chefs and served restaurant style.
Manna’s Market offers a way to put fresh, canned, and boxed groceries in pantries and on tables of those who need it most. Those who require assistance can come in and shop for the foods to provide nutritious meals for their families.
Manna on Main Street also provides emergency financial assistance for bills such as utilities, rent, medical needs, and much more to ease the difficulty of hard times when they arise.
Programs are available to further the education of those in the community as well. From food service training to lifestyle courses, they assist in growing the Lansdale area and the people in it.
