Established in 1983, Manna Food Center distributes approximately 12,000 pounds of food daily.  More than just a food bank, Manna is a center of distribution and nutrition education.

For this volunteer event, participants will go to Manna’s warehouse and help check expiration dates and sort non-perishable food items into designated bins.  Volunteers may also be asked to help with sorting/bagging bread or meat or other tasks as needed.  The tasks involve bending, reaching, and standing.

Participants provide their own transportation and will meet at the Manna warehouse at 9311 Gaither Road, Gaithersburg, MD  20877.  Volunteers may park in the lot directly in front of Manna.

Wear casual clothing and sneakers or work boots.  Bring a penlight or magnifying glass to read expiration dates.

Limit: 10
