MANNA Packs for Kids - Feeding Children in Need

MANNA Food Bank - Packs For Kids MANNA Packs are weekly packs of food placed into a child’s backpack on a Friday afternoon. Each MANNA Pack holds enough food including snacks to feed a child over the weekend.

Heartbreakingly, in Western North Carolina, one in four children doesn’t know where they will get their next meal. For many, the only regular meals they receive are provided through the free and reduced school meals programs. While their peers are enjoying weekend activities, these young students are faced with a much more adult worry: whether they will eat this weekend.

MANNA Packs ensure that the most at-risk students in WNC go home with a bag of child-friendly nutritious food to give them the energy they need to learn, grow, and develop. MANNA FoodBank partners with 141 schools across WNC to provide 5,050 children with the food they need each week throughout the school year.

It costs just $2.83 to fill a pack for a child in need so a gift of $12.00 provides enough food for every week-end for an entire month!

MANNA FoodBank is proud to share that for every dollar given to MANNA, .94 cents goes to our mission ranking us in the top 4% of all non-profit organizations nationwide for our stewardship of donor gifts.
