To our Manna & Greater Northampton Community,
In the wake of Gov. Baker’s restrictions on restaurants and group gatherings, we have decided to make a transition to serving our meals as to-gos. We will still be here, 5 days a week, with fresh, hot, and nutritious meals, but we will now be handing them out at our door for you to take with you. We have also extended our hours in an effort to spread out our meal collections so our patrons can more easily maintain social distance. We have purchased a tent and erected it on the front lawn of St. John’s Episcopal Church for those who wish to dine safely outdoors in community.
During this immensely challenging time, we are prepared to help. If you or anyone you know are in need of meals, please feel no hesitation in utilizing our services. We are here for everyone in our community.
Our hours and locations:
Monday: 11:30 – 1:30pm at St. John’s Episcopal Church
Tuesday: 11:30 – 1:30pm at St. John’s Episcopal Church
Wednesday: 6:00 – 7:00pm at St. John’s Episcopal Church
Thursday: 11:30 – 1:30pm at St. John’s Episcopal Church
Saturday: 11:30 – 1:30pm at Edwards Church
Please reach out to us if these are outside of your availability, as we’d like to make arrangements to assist you in whatever way we can. We have the ability to prepare a number of meals to be picked up at different times and have worked with people in the community to offer free home delivery services.
If you have any questions about how we can help you get through this, please call us at (413) 584-1757, send an email to one of us firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or message us on Facebook @mannanorthampton, we are here for you.
If you’d like to support us in our mission to serve those in our community who face hunger and food insecurity, a financial donation allows us to continue purchasing fresh food and other necessities to keep our meals going out our door and into the hands of the people that need them.
We will get through this together by being vigilant and mindful of the needs, health, and well-being of everyone.
