Bread for the World puts price tag on U.S. hunger: $160 billion in health care | The Kansas City Star

Doctors are increasingly recognizing the connection between health and hunger, experts said. “You can’t be healthy, you can’t be able to stave off chronic diseases if you’re not eating healthy food,” says Acacia Bamberg Salatti of the Center for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

Celestial Manna is hitting at this problem in America one person at a time.  Families are able to feed their children everyday now because of the community outreach Celestial Manna is providing the hungry.

Please donate to this cause and help your local community.  We are feeding +6,000 individuals every week through our network of volunteers.

Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

charlie hosting dinnerCelestial Manna is delighted to announce that we had a fabulous Appreciation Night Dinner for our Montgomery County volunteers.

This fun-filled venue provided a joyous opportunity for our team of devoted servants to meet one another and hear testimonies of how they are impacting the lives of people in their local communities.  We also shared the vision and projects afoot at Celestial Manna-- our growth and reach requires an infrastructure to support and grow with our outreach and services.

This gala was a small way of showing our volunteers how much we care for their cumulative years of service with Celestial Manna.  Celestial Manna would not have lasted these almost three decades without their daily service and sacrifice.  We have reaped many successes in our many years of existence because everyone has contributed their time and best efforts in their volunteering.

We are in our season of giving the most as many fall through the cracks of assistance to stretch their limited resources. For this Thanksgiving we are partnering with Julie's Love to provide 150 meals for families in need in Gaithersburg, MD.
