Throughout the month of November, NIKA staff members have donated a wide variety of canned and dried goods for Manna Food Center in Gaithersburg, MD. By November 17th, NIKA had collected more than 461 pounds of food to help Manna meet their mission of eliminating hunger in Montgomery County, where NIKA is headquartered.
Since 1983, Manna has worked to fight hunger, feed hope and transition recipients from a place of scarcity to prosperity. Manna stands as the premier food bank of Montgomery County, providing food to 40,000 individuals each year and helping distribute rescued food to soup kitchens, food pantries and emergency shelters county-wide. Nearly every social service organization in Montgomery County relies on Manna to provide food to their clients, and we are honored to play our part in the strong social safety net. Also operating as a food pantry, Manna directly reaches into the community through a network of distribution sites in every quadrant of the county.
