About Us


St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church started The Manna Pantry in 1989, running it out of a closet. Subsequently, St. Mary Catholic Parish and Immanuel Lutheran Church joined in this joint community ministry.

The Manna Pantry was granted 501(c)(3) tax exempt status in 2014. In 2015, the Manna Pantry was incorporated and became an independent non-profit organization which is still housed at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. It is no longer run “out of a closet”. Rather, it occupies their garage, which is now referred to as “the annex”.


Thank you to the community members, businesses and organizations who support us!


Thank you to all our tireless troops who give their time to see that out mission is fulfilled. You are the hands that allow us to open our doors every day!
