Manna on Meridian

0 comments

 

TallyFoodWeb.com is proud to recognize and highlight the incredible work related to food insecurity and injustice being done by local organizations in Leon County! This week we turn out attention to Manna on Meridian, a coalition formed between 4 local churches designed to help provide food and clothing to families in need. The members of Faith Presbyterian, St. Stephen Lutheran, Saint Paul's United Methodist, and Unitarian Universalist churches make up the organizational structure of Manna on Meridian. These four churches have come together in mutual recognition of the hardships that many families face as a direct result of economic downturn to bolster their individual capabilities to serve by uniting their efforts.

Manna on Meridian’s website provides an accurate synopsis of their cause and provides a comprehensive list of ways to get involved:

 

Manna on Meridian distributes food and clothing on the 3rd Saturday of each month, 9-10 a.m., from the building behind the church office parking lot at Faith Presbyterian Church.

 

There are several ways you can help Manna on Meridian:

  • Bring non-perishable food items to Faith and place them in the collection bins. Bring food anytime.

  • Bring fresh produce on the 3rd Friday afternoon of the month for the 3rd Saturday distribution.

  • Gather food from the bins at Faith and take it to the distribution building at Delta Court.

  • Sort food on the shelves at the Delta Court distribution building.

  • Bag food for distribution.

  • Help distribute food and clothing and make new friends on the 3rd Saturday morning of each month from 8:30-10 a.m.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Rob McNeely at mannaonmeridian@gmail.com

  • This week, Tallyfoodweb.com is excited to highlight the efforts of America’s Second Harvest of the Big Bend . The primary and most current project that they are undertaking is providing a hunger free summer for the ~25,000 children in the Tallahassee area that face hunger during the summer months, where they have no access to school lunches. In 2018, Second harvest delivered over 7.4 million free meals. This is possible through 130 strong partnerships with non-profit and faith-based organizations that help address food hunger and insecurity. Lott’s community garden is one such organization that, in one year has provided 16,518 pounds of fresh produce for the second harvest to distribute. To do your part in helping alleviate food hunger in the big bend area, where Leon county is ranked the third most food insecure county in Florida, you can reach out to these volunteer coordinators or donate as little as a dollar (which provides 4 meals) using this URL: https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/1440077?code=Meals To volunteer at Lott’s Community Garden, contact Kristine Lamont at lamontk@hotmail.com To volunteer at the food bank, contact Shari Hubbard at ShariHubbard@FightingHunger.org or (850) 562-3033 Food donations are also accepted.
