About us

Celestial Manna is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization started in 1986 by Charlie Mann. Our primary mission is to feed the hungry by providing them with free food from locally donated resources.  What started as a means to feed his own family now provides weekly support for +6,000 people in the state of Maryland and northern Virginia.

More Info
Celestial Manna currently provides support to people in dire need of food, clothing, furniture, toys and household goods. Because the business is based in Derwood Maryland, the initial effort was focused to the Washington DC and Baltimore areas. However, the growth that transpired saw branches springing up in other places all over Maryland and Northern Virginia.  We have also implemented donations programs overseas, reaching countries in Africa, Central, South America, and the Caribbean.

We help people from all walks of life: blue-collar workers, low-income families, single-parent households, and diverse ethnicities. We gauge and are rewarded for our labor of love by the smiles and personal testimonies of the countless families we have helped in our communities.
