MANNA Food Pantries is a short-term emergency food distribution organization. MANNA serves more than 40,000 people in Northwest Florida annually through its network of five distribution sites spread throughout Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Recently, the flood of April 2014 left unimagined devastation for our community and for MANNA. The City of Pensacola suffered a dramatic loss to homes, businesses, streets, and organizations who give back to citizens of our great community. One organization who helps make a significant impact in the lives of the poor in our community is Manna Food Pantries. The flood caused Manna to lose EVERYTHING, including catastrophic damage to their warehouse facility, therefore temporarily relinquishing their goal to "LEAVE NO ONE UNFED".
With your help, Fitness Onboard™ and Waterman's Paddle For Humanity, has the opportunity to help Manna Food Pantries restore their capability to "LEAVE NO ONE UNFED". Today, Manna is UNABLE to provide ANY food to men, women and children in our community. This is an unfortunate time for children to be out of school for summer, where they can normally rely on free food during their school week.
