Friends of Manna

Volunteers at Manna

“Friends of Manna” is our heartfelt way to thank loyal volunteers and financial supporters.

The dedication and hard work of our volunteers is invaluable—drastically reducing the cost of operations—while annual, unrestricted donations provide the support needed to pay for the remaining expenses. These include the cost of utilities, insurance, vehicle maintenance, office supplies, and staff salaries.

The “Friends” of Manna are recognized on this page for their crucial contribution to feed the hungry in Northern Michigan. If you don’t want your name published, please contact Manna.

This inner circle of friends receives a variety of other benefits as well, including a quarterly newsletter, an invitation to special events and educational opportunities, a copy of our annual report, and their choice of Manna logo items.

You become a Friend of Manna in two ways:

  • Volunteering 40 hours or more annually—whether that’s once a week, a few hours a month, or whatever works best for you.
  • Donating $150 or more annually—whether as a single gift, recurring monthly donation, or whatever works best for you.

For more information about “Friends of Manna,” contact Kim Baker at kbaker@mannafoodproject.org or (231) 675-5715.
