Weis Market Grand Opening

The brand new Weis Market in Gaithersburg, MD invited Celestial Manna’s owner Charlie Mann to make a presentation highlighting the relationship between the grocery giant and the food reclamation non-profit organization.  Celestial Manna receives fresh food items that are nearing expiration, as well as other food goods which have, and distributes them to food insecure people in the local area.  Celestial Manna has been doing this for over 30 years now and gives food to over 10,000 people a month.  The Weis Market brand is one of many major groceries in which we have a working relationship in the Maryland and Northern Virginia areas.

Military Support

More than 100 active duty US military members and their families came by to pick up produce, dairy items, juice and more which were all provided from Celestial Manna.

We were also able to bless Sarah’s House, a homeless and battered women’s shelter, for their residents to put food on their tables.

An entire village of volunteers, and us, are so grateful and appreciative for everything, thank you!

Help ALL in NEED

A Honduras family living in Montgomery County contacted me yesterday- they are going through very hard times. The husband either lost or had stolen his passport and is waiting on a new one from his consulate. Without proper identification he is unable to get a driver’s license- Celestial Manna provided a new working 3 speed bicycle so he could commute to and from his day laborer job. The family is living in a musty basement and the children play on a cold tile floor- CM delivered a carpet to provide warmth and a soft place for them to play. They didn’t even have a refrigerator- CM was able to provide one completely filled with food rescued by our organization.

Not only does Celestial Manna provide food for over 9,000 needy people each month, but the gracious donations of appliances, clothes, and household goods are given to those in true need.

Blessings,

Charlie Mann
