In addition to volunteers delivering food from local food resources and grocery stores, Senior Connection has partnered with Manna Food Center to provide wholesome and nutritious food through our SC/Manna Box Delivery Program.
We recognize that there are several issues that impede food security for area seniors. The goal of this program is to remove some of those impediments and provide that security. The SC/Manna Box Delivery Program ensures that a Manna food box is automatically delivered to participant clients every month.
What is a Manna Food Box?
Manna is a local food bank that opened its doors in 1983, and strives to eliminate hunger through food distribution (a “Manna Box”) and education. The box contains pantry staples (e.g. beans, pasta, canned vegetables, canned fruits), fresh fruits and vegetables, and a bag of frozen meat. Participants can request a vegetarian or diabetic box. Each box contains enough food for a month/per household and can weigh up to 70 pounds. To find more on Manna, click HERE.

I am not a client of Manna, now what?
No worries, we can help with that as well.
How does this all work?
Once you are set up as a client of Senior Connection and of Manna (if you are not already), a recurring monthly delivery date for your Manna box will be established and communicated to you. You do not need to call Senior Connection or Manna every month to request a box and delivery. Jennifer will take care of everything from here. For your first delivery, our driver will call you in advance to discuss delivery logistics. Of course, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call (301-962-0820) or email Juanita.
