"Providing food assistance to families and individuals in need"
Manna Pantry is a food resource center feeding the hungry in Canadian County. It is a non-profit community service proudly supported by local churches, businesses, and individuals. With a volunteer staff, the Manna Pantry began in 1975 and has a 45-year history of collecting and distributing food in the Yukon community. As a non-profit organization we rely on donations for all our funding. We receive donations of both money and food to meet the needs of the clients we serve.
In the year 2020 the Manna Pantry provided 2 weeks of groceries for 3200 families (over 10,000 adults and children) in our community. Due to the current world events, the need is increasing. The Manna Pantry Food Resource Center served 565 new families. This represents 1791 of our friends and neighbors, that have never sought assistance from us in the past, that now struggle with food insecurity.
