About Us

History

St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church started The Manna Pantry in 1989, running it out of a closet. Subsequently, St. Mary-St. Paul Catholic Parish, Immanuel Lutheran Church, and the St. Mary-St. Paul Ministry 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”.
