We stopped by Manna Meal to help serve lunch with the absolutely awesome team there. Huge thank you to Leslie, Camellia, and Jean for all of their graciousness and love and for all of the work they’re doing in their community. We’re so blessed to have spent time with them.
More about Manna Meal (from their website):
Manna Meal Inc. (MMI) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation that operates a soup kitchen located inside St. John’s Episcopal Church in the heart of downtown Charleston, WV. MMI thrives through the generosity and support of our community to provide a safe haven, no questions asked. We are not a government agency and rely solely on contributions from our community and grants that we write.
We have been feeding the hungry of the Kanawha Valley since 1976. Over that period of time, we have grown from serving a single person a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a bowl of soup, to a vital part of the community serving as many as 400 people each day well balanced nutritious meals.
We serve two meals a day (breakfast & lunch), 365 days a year, to individuals and families that include the homeless, mentally challenged, under-employed workers as well as people who simply cannot make ends meet.
“No questions asked,” is a cornerstone to our mission. We believe strongly that we do not need to ask any questions about your income, faith, or housing situation to feed you. Our mission is “so the hungry can eat”
